This year marks my 16th year in education. I started my career teaching 5th grade and then served as an elementary school principal. Prior to serving as 2nd grade teacher, I worked with an international non-profit that provides teacher training and then as a 4th and 5th grade teacher. I have loved each part of my journey, but my heart is truly in the classroom. I love coming to school each day to help my students learn and grow!

My students are eager to please and hard-workers. Our school serves a large population of high-poverty students, so having reading materials readily available at school is particularly important.
