I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. I even have a worksheet from first grade that says "When I grow up, I want to be a teacher." This is my 18th year in education. I have my BA in English and my MA in Curriculum and Instruction.
Some things I love: my family, watching hockey, Drew Brees, To Kill a Mockingbird, boxing, and organizing. Some things I really don't like: disrespect, spiders, gummy food of any kind (gummy worms, Dots, etc), horror movies, and road trips.
Middle school students are THE BEST, and I absolutely LOVE eighth graders. I'm so excited to be here at Thunder Vista with you. I look forward to an awesome year of hard work, critical thinking, and most importantly: growing connections. We will face challenges together, working to problem solve and persevere!
