Hey there! Welcome to my page! I have been teaching since 2007 in some way, shape, or form. My time in the public, private, and homeschool systems has led me to really appreciate what all those formats have in common... the kids! I teach because I love connecting and forming relationships with the students. While I have taught grades 7-12, I will be teaching English 3 & 4 this year.
I haven't always been in the South. In August my husband and I packed up our two kids and our dog and travelled cross country from California to South Carolina. I was born and raised in Southern California and did my undergraduate work at a small private Christian college called Azusa Pacific University. From there I earned my teaching credential from Cal State University San Bernardino.
When not in the classroom I enjoy playing with my kids, taking my dog on a walk, trying new restaurants with my husband, and binge-watching Friends re-runs. This year I look forward to including going to sporting events, school plays, and competitions to my list of things I like to do. I am excited to be a Yellow Jacket this year and to support my students!
