As a teacher, I give tools and strategies for students to use and let my students put those to use to create their own understanding. Even at a young age, I feel students learn more when they create understanding for themselves,rather than being explicitly told how to do something. I put relationships first and curriculum second, regardless. Every student is special and deserves to be told that. The most rewarding part of teaching is knowing that you have helped someone become more, you have helped a little person grow, you have made a difference.
Graduated Magna Cum Laude.

I am 24 years old and exploring the world and this life with my partner in crime and love of my life, Thomas. We love to travel, workout, watch movies and Netflix, spend time with our families and our friends, play cards, and just goof around. I am not only a teacher in the classroom, but in the gym as well. I have a burning passion for health and fitness and love sharing my knowledge and experiences. I have been a fitness instructor for 4 years, managed a fitness program, and am now a personal trainer! Again, I love making a difference in the lives of others and watching someone who thought they could never change find a new way of life.
