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 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.
Honors in Education: Investigated the correlation between students’ gaming habits and their higher order thinking skills (published by Houghton College); Suma Cum Laude; Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges

I enjoy cooking/baking, ballroom dancing, playing board games, and going to the movies!
