I come from a family of educators, but I struggled a lot in school growing up. It wasn't until college where I found my passion and direction in life. In college, I began working in schools, first as an after-school daycare aide and then later as a math tutor at a local high school. I didn't get into teaching until graduate school, where I taught college composition and rhetoric, creative writing, and advanced business writing. But I soon realized that was not where I needed to be. I went back to school, got my teaching credential, and taught middle school ever since– never looking back. Teaching middle school has been and continues to be something that I'm passionate and excited about doing every day.
Favorite Subject in School:
I'm a musician (7 different instruments), an avid model railroaded, and an amateur chef.
