Why I am Committed to Amphi

I believe all students can be successful and deserve the opportunities that an education provides.

Defining Moment in my Education

Senior year, my History teacher asked when I planned on running for President because he would vote for me. It made me realize I could be more than I thought.

Why I am teaching at Amphi Middle School

The students at Amphi are very unique from one another. I love how the school embraces these differences and creates a caring community of Amphi Pirates!
