I have taught 5th grade Social Studies and Language Arts for 2 years each in both a public and a private school. I have also led a team of teachers in vertically aligning the Social Studies curriculum and instruction across grades levels from elementary to high school.
I believe that my role as a teacher is to create a learning environment that is intentionally designed to invite students to think deeply, cultivate their imagination, and develop personal responsibility for their education.

I enjoy spending time with my family, baking/cooking/eating meals together, watching & critiquing movies, singing in a choir, and playing competitive board/card games!
