Education has always been my passion. After earning a degree in English Education, I taught English in Mali, West Africa for two years. Since 2009 I have taught Language Arts at the Owasso Seventh Grade Center in Owasso, OK.
I aim to integrate reading and writing in a way that engages students to become lifelong readers and writers.
