This is my 5th year teaching. I began in 2nd grade, then moved up to 5-8 ELA. in 2015 I relocated to a different school where I teach 8th and 9th grade ELA.
I am both organized and easy going. I teach my students how to engage in close reading, show evidence in their writing, write both creatively and technically, and have pride in their work.
I am honored every day to simply be permitted to work in a great school, among incredible teachers, with bright students.
I received my Bachelor's degree from Eastern Illinois University in 2011 and my Master's degree from Maryville University in 2015. I am certified K-9 self-contained; 5-8 English Language Arts; K-12 Fine Arts; and K-12 Gifted Education.
I have been married to my husband for 5 years, and I have a beautiful son who is one year old.
