I began teaching high school English in 2003 at the Paideia School and later transitioned to teaching middle school Social Studies at the Friends School of Atlanta.
My passion is in unlocking the connection between the student and the content, discovering the relevance in their lives, and empowering students to feel a sense of self-confidence in knowing the material, and most of all, knowing how best they learn. I use humor. I use surprise. I use music, food, and sports. Current events and movies. I spiral through my curriculum to reinforce understanding and make connections.
Yet to be added
I am Quaker educated, and a Quaker educator. This means I aim to see the goodness or light in every student. I'm in the electricity business: I want to elevate student wattage, so that they shine their brightest.
I am certified to teach yoga at the RYT-500 level. I co-facilitate international professional development trips for teachers with The Nobis Project.
