Welcome! Let me tell you a little about myself. I am originally from LeRoy, IL. After graduating from LeRoy High School, I went on to earn my Bachelor's Degree in English and my Certification in Secondary Education from Eastern Illinois University. I completed my student teaching in Mattoon and continued to teach there for three years. As of 2007, I became a full-time faculty member of Bement Community Unit School District 5.

"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry
because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.
And medicine, law, business, engineering -- these are noble pursuits and necessary
to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love -- these are what
we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!...
of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless...
of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these,
O me, O life?" 
Answer: That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful
play goes on and you may contribute a verse. 
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.
What will your verse be?
- John Keating, Dead Poets Society
