I am a first year school counselor and was formally a classroom teacher. I began teaching in 2007 in a Pre-Primary Montessori classroom. After my year at the Montessori school, I switched to public school and spent a year teaching first grade. Next, I spent six years teaching second grade! I loved teaching second grade because of the the amazing growth my students made throughout the year. I have always been passionate about the social and emotional growth of my students, so I decided to pursue a graduate degree in counseling. I completed a dual counseling degree and am now a Licensed School Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Ohio. I am eager to begin my first year as a school counselor!
I create engaging lessons that incorporate many learning styles, technology, and character development.
As a teacher, I served as grade level chair and also participated in many district committees. I have received two Education Association Grants, as well as two DonorsChoose Grants. I enjoy mentoring new teachers and helping other teachers with technology. I have also had the privilege of teaching internationally in El Salvador and Ghana.
