This is my fourth year teaching at Menifee Elementary, and I'm so grateful to be returning for the 2020-2021 school year!
I was born and raised in Ohio, and have lived in Menifee County since 2010. I am married with two boys, both of whom attend school here in Menifee County.
I am a 2015 graduate of Morehead State University, with a bachelor's degree in Secondary English Education, and a 2019 graduate of the University of Massachusetts Boston, with a master's degree in Applied Linguistics and TESOL. I am also ceritified to teach English and communications for grades 5-9, and am currently studying gifted education at Morehead State University.
In addition to teaching 7th-grade ELA and activities, I am the Gifted/Talented teacher for middle grades. I serve as a certified coach with the Literacy Design Collaborative, teacher representative for the SBDM council, chair for the MES literacy team, and a member of the people committee. I am the assistant coach for academics, adviser to the National Junior Honor Society, and drama coach for middle grades.
