I like to learn alongside my students. I'm a huge fan of shared inquiry/socratic seminar. I demand that students give their best. I believe in analyzing text in an authentic way. I support self-directed learning. I expect that all students can succeed by capitalizing on their strengths and gifts. I always ask students to resubmit work until they have reached mastery.

I'm a Netflix binger, it's when I also get most of my planning done! I love all things nerdy. My husband and I also love to spend time together and play with our beautiful King Charles Cavalier, Bella, and our new baby!
