MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated with an English Literature and Writing degree from Bethel University in Minnesota and then went on to receive a Master's in Teaching from National Louis University. Life found me moving back to my hometown to teach where I grew up. It's been such a blessing to educate the community that taught me so much.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I strive to create lessons that look fresh, clean, and mature for middle school students. Above all, these lessons are carefully crafted to be informative, fun, and Common Core-aligned.
