I'm excited to be teaching 7th and 8th grade English again this year, and to continue my role as the Shepherd Cheerleading Co-Coach for High School and Head Coach for Middle School.
I'm originally from a small town in Iowa (well, 1,400 people, I suppose it's a bit bigger than Shepherd) and have enjoyed living in many different locations throughout the Americas. After earning my Bachelors from Simpson College, I traveled to Peru to teach English as an additional language. I then returned to Iowa to earn my Masters and traveled to El Salvador where I taught English Language Arts at the American School of El Salvador, an accredited private K-12 school that followed Common Core curriculum. I fell in love with the culture, people, and weather (no snow!).
I am passionate about education, and I know the value of literacy and strong critical thinking and communication skills. As an avid reader and writer myself, I enjoy working with students to improve their skills through practice, practice, practice.
Let's have a great school year,
