Leaning is something that we, as humans, do constantly, whether we know it or not. When we become aware of our learning and what works for us, we have the power to learn more effectively in all areas of life. I love helping students recognize their learning potential and helping them gain confidence in their abilities.

I have worked, as a student teacher, in both a private middle school and a public high school. I have worked with 8th grade ELA students and 9th grade ELD/ELA students. I also have a 2nd grade child at home and help them with their education daily.

I graduated with a BA in Teacher Education: Secondary English Language Arts from the University of New Mexico and plan on pursuing multiple teaching endorsements.

I believe everyone has the capacity to be, and should be interested in being, a lifelong learner. One issue in today's society is that learning has become stigmatized as something "forced by authority" and "boring". As a teacher, it is my purpose to change this perspective in as many individuals as possible. The stigmatization of learning, perpetuated by generations of teaching students to be productive workers instead of innovative thinkers, has caused student to view learning through a black and white lens: either they are good, productive students, or they aren't. In the education field, this is called a fixed academic mindset. These students don't see their potential as learners, so they don't see the value in investing in their education. The hard fact is that these students are learners whether they realize it or not! They are always learning the language of the latest memes or the lyrics to their new favorite song. They even learn to master new technology faster than their adult counterparts. People are always learning. As a teachers, it is our job to harness this learning potential and give our students learning outlets and supports that play to their strengths and encourage growth. Getting students to believe in their potential as learners gives them permission to explore it and helps them develop a growth mindset.
