Welcome to my page! I am so excited to be a part of your Yellow Jacket journey!
I'm a California girl, born and bred, but I also spent some of my formative years in Arizona. In 2001, I moved to the East Coast, where I've lived in Florida and the Carolinas. Today, my family is happy to call Irmo our forever home.
I've been in the education field for over 20 years, as both an English teacher and a product designer for an edtech company. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Education degree in English from Arizona State University (go Sun Devils!) and am finishing my Master of Education degree in Literacy from Converse College (go Valkyries!). In my classroom, I value the importance of creating a safe community in which to learn and grow. I'm a huge bookworm and hope to inspire my students to become lifelong readers and creators.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, knitting, listening to podcasts, watching Netflix and Disney+, playing with my dog, and hanging out by the pool.
