I believe every student is a distinct individual, full of potential, who needs a safe, structured, and stimulating environment to flourish. Through 11 years of experience developing curriculum and teaching life-skills and parenting to pregnant and parenting teens, and my last year as a student teacher, I learned that every student has the capacity to grow, to change and to develop, as a student, as a leader and as a person.

I am still developing as a teacher, and will continue to do so. I am confident that I make a positive difference in the lives of students through consistent and intentional classroom management, engaging lessons and projects, strong relationships, effective communication and using data to guide differentiation and intervention.
