I have previously taught 7th grade reading, as well as 9th-12th grade English. I currently teach English to a fabulous group of freshmen, juniors, and seniors.
Building relationships with my students through sharing my love for creativity is my biggest passion. I've learned more and more that relationships are the best foundation for running an inquisitive, productive, and supportive classroom.

I recently relocated to a small town in western Washington, near our state's capitol. I'm absolutely fascinated with true crime and you can find me with my nose in an Ann Rule book (if I'm not in my craft room).
