Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! I am excited to work with you this upcoming school year even though it may look different. I know that we will tackle any challenges together as a team; the key is to stay positive!
I am married to my awesome husband, Chris. We have a daughter, Chloe, who is in first grade and a son, John, who is 2 years old. They take up most of my free time, but some hobbies that I enjoy are cooking, exercising, and reading!
I graduated from Montclair State University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in English, minor in History, and a Teacher of English Certification. Additionally, I have earned my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Adolescent Literacy from Concordia University - Portland.
This will be my 12th year teaching. Throughout my career, I have taught at the 7th and 8th grade levels. I absolutely love teaching 7th grade! It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so that my students develop a desire to become lifelong learners. I look forward to meeting you and a great year together!
