5th year teacher for the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools (a suburb of Detroit). I have taught both American History and Spanish. I pre-interned and student taught in Kalamazoo (MI) Public Schools. Substitute teacher in various districts in metro Detroit (Bloomfield Hills, Livonia, Novi, Farmington, and Waterford).
I have high standards for all of my students and continually push them to go for the gold. I have no problem making a fool out of myself if it will help my students learn the material. This combination of high standards and joking atmosphere help me bond for my students.

I love music and art history and try to integrate them into my curriculum. I will do whatever it takes to make the material we are studying hit home and resonate with my students.
