I am a UT Austin grad and a public-school teacher of 6 years. I double-majored in Latin and Ancient History & Classical Civilizations with a minor in Art History.
My first foray into teaching was with first-graders in Kurdistan, Iraq where I taught English, Mathematics, and Music. After that ,I came home to Texas and began teaching Latin, world history, and theater at a public charter school to middle and high schoolers.
My students have praised me for my passionate, creative, and quirky teaching style, and my colleagues rely on me for my tenacity and detail-oriented mentality. I have learned that, as Grant Allen put it, the best teachers "never let schooling interfere with education."
Outside of the classroom, I am an avid seamstress, animal lover, and thespian.
