I am entering into my 11th year as a high school English teacher. I teach in a large urban high school.
I truly believe in creating independent and confident communicators. Steve Hagen says it best, "The final job of teacher, free student of teacher." Everything I do in the classroom is built around the idea that I want students to be able to stand on their own and advocate for the beliefs and life they find most meaningful.
National Board Certified English Teacher
Bachelor of Science from Bemidji State University; Masters in Secondary English from Johns Hopkins University; Reading Specialist Certificate from Hamline University
In addition to teaching I also serve as the student council advisor. I'm all about student leadership and try to incorporate that into my classroom as much as possible.
