I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in political science from Hollins University. I had the wonderful opportunity to study in France and spend a semester in London. Finding a positive learning environment where I was able to thrive was a turning point in my life and shifted my career route towards education. Following graduation, I earned a Masters of Arts in Education from Pepperdine University. I also earned CA teaching credentials in Social Science, English, and Multiple Subject (elementary). I have worked with all types of learners as both a secondary English and history teacher but also as a tutor for students in grades 5-12. I am most passionate about giving students the personalized educational experience they need and deserve. I teach most history subjects, English, writing, and study skills. I am at my best working with struggling learners who need to build the skills necessary to become lifelong learners. I believe each student has the capacity to learn. Often the struggles students have stem from a lack of academic literacy and executive functioning skills. These can develop overtime while working through school content. I overseeing curricula for a national group of secondary schools and am currently seeking a Doctorate of Education-Learning Technologies at Pepperdine University. When I am not working or studying, I enjoy exploring the city, traveling, seeing friends, and attending theatre productions.
