As a teacher, I love what I do and strive to be better everyday. There have been many experiences, both professional and personal, that have formed my philosophy on education and motivated me to be a teacher.
I received a Bachelor or Arts in Education with a focus on English and History from Western Michigan University. While at WMU, I was a proud member of the WMU Bronco Marching Band Color Guard, an active member of Sigma Tau Delta English Honors Fraternity and a enthusiastic instructor of English 1000: Intro to Basic Writing.
After graduation I accepted a job at Climax-Scotts Community Alternative School in Climax, MI where I taught literature, basic reading and writing to alternative high school students. In 2007 I moved from Michigan to Maryland to teach 9th grade English at Doris M. Johnson High School in Baltimore City. I taught in Baltimore for two years before accepting my current position in Howard County, MD.
Professionally, I currently serve as the Class of 2013 Adviser, and am a member of the SGA action team. I am also a 0th and 11th grade English teacher and a proctor for the SAT examinations. I am currently earning a Masters Degree in School Library Media from McDaniel College. I expect to graduate in the Spring of 2013.
In my free time I enjoy quilting, baking, reading and spending time with my husband, and my dog Indiana.
