Defining Moment in My Education:

There were times during my college programs when the tasks felt “too hard” or I thought to myself “I can’t do this.” But I pushed through, grew through the challenges, and was able to pursue my passion of teaching ELA and working with students. You can do anything that you set your mind on!


Why I Work at  AMS

I love working with middle school students because they are fun, creative, and are preparing to figure out what career and college paths they want to take. As an educator, it is such a joy to be a part of students’ journeys as they transition to high school.

Why I am Committed to Amphi

Amphi is a wonderful middle school that is filled with amazing students from our community. It is an honor to work with these students and watch them grow into 21st century students who are going to do big things once they move on to high school and beyond.

Hobbies and Interests

I love: Karaoke, spending time with my family and adorable dogs, playing Scrabble, writing poetry, playing golf, going to concerts, traveling, all things Hello Kitty, and gardening.
