Why I am committed to Amphi:

Amphi has an incredible culture that I plan to be a part of for years to come. The teachers are supportive and the students are enjoyable to teach. There are tremendous opportunities for students regarding academics and athletics. 

The defining moment in my education:

When I was in school, I remember the positive impacts teachers had on me. I decided I wanted to be that same type of role model for my students. It’s truly an empowering profession. 

Why I teach at AHS: 

AHS has a great system for teachers and students to succeed. The school uses professional development and a mentoring program to aid teachers. Through this and my prior experience, I feel prepared to enter the classroom. During my time in the district, I have also coached on a few different platforms. I’m currently the Varsity Girl’s Basketball coach at the high school. Attached is the link to my coaching page:


  • Spending time with family
