Hello! This is my second year teaching English at Cleveland NJROTC and I am so excited to be here.
This year, I am leading the Freshman Success Team and helping to design unit projects for out seniors. My goal is to increase project-based learning assignments for students of all ages and abilities.
I graduated in 2016 with my Bachelor's in English and a certificate for teaching secondary education. My goal has always been to become an English teacher, so that I can inspire students to love learning and to love literature.
In my free time I enjoy reading, traveling, and trying out different restaurants around St. Louis.
Eventually, I would love to get my masters in education and focus on functions of behavior in urban schools.
Feel free to email me with any questions, comments or concerns. Thank You!
