Welcome! I am excited to be an AIC at Gateway STEM High School this year!
My role is to support teachers through coaching, providing instructional resources, and delivering professional development in order to ensure that all the students of Gateway have great learning experiences. I feel privileged to work with the dedicated teachers of Gateway STEM!
I am from St. Louis and proud to be a part of St. Louis Public Schools. I attended St. Norbert College in Green Bay, WI and graduated with an English major and Fine Arts minor. After college I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, spending six months walking from Georgia to Vermont. I then came back to St. Louis and enrolled at Webster University to earn my Master's degree in Communication Arts. I worked for a small non-profit for a few years before starting my teaching career and earning my teaching certification (Cross-category K-12, English 9-12) from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I spent 13 years as a special education teacher at both Sumner and Roosevelt High Schools, during which time I also obtained Reading Specialist certification from UMSL, before joining the team at Gateway this year as an AIC.
Outside of work I enjoy baking, traveling, reading, watching movies, and hanging out with my husband, our two kids, and our dog.
