I am a graduate of Longwood University and Radford University. I attended Longwood for my undergrad and earned a Bachelor of Science in Communication Science and Disorders with a minor in Special Education. I continued my education at Radford University where I earned a Master's degree in Special Education with a focus on Deaf Education. I am in my 8th year of teaching and I teach high school (grades 9-12). During my 8 years, I have worked with many students of varying ability levels and backgrounds. I have experience in a a few different science areas: Earth Science, Biology, and Ecology. My passion lies in Biology! I have experience preparing students for our state standardized testing. Something I am passionate about is getting kids involved in science and making it fun! I also have experience working with students on developing the soft skills needed to navigate the academic world such as organization and study skills. I enjoy supporting students with these skills that they can take out into the real world.

Outside of teaching and science, I enjoy reading, true crime, and spending time with friends and family! Friday evenings you can find me cuddled up with a good snack in front of the TV watching the latest 20/20 episode. When I have a few days off, I like to take road trips to the mountains or the beach. During those car rides you will find me with my nose to my Kindle reading mysteries!
