Why I teach
I teach because I love helping students be the best versions of themselves by promoting students to be critical thinkers to help them figure out real-life problems that may arise. I enjoy moments when a struggling student grasps a concept after putting in time and effort. Lastly, I strive to make sure each student feels seen and heard in my class, so they know that they can make a difference in our world.
Middle School Science Highlights
Every day students solve real-life problems. We will look through microscopes to examine cells, create ecosystems, and make water bottle rockets to launch in the back parking lot. Science camp is also a huge highlight!
I completed two Disney College Internship Programs, one at Disney World and one at Disneyland. I have an American Eskimo Dog named Hugo. I love the Pittsburg Steelers.
