I strive to create a learning environment where students know they are safe, understood, and valued. Each child's needs are unique, so education should be approached in a way that cultivates individual's minds. I believe in putting students first and motivating them to take charge of their own learning, so they can take pride in their milestones and goals.

I love to be outside by the river during the summer. I enjoy spending time with my family doing everything from water sports to just hanging out on the couch for family movie night. I read as much as I can, and I co-direct our school district's theatre program. I have a passion for musical theatre and love to act, sing, and direct!
