Hi all! I graduated from Mount Vernon Nazarene University in December of 2014 with a Bachelor's in Integrated Language Arts Education. To simplify that, I am certified to each anything surrounding the English language for grades 7-12. I absolutely love reading (mostly books I can recommend to my students). I was the kind of reader who fell in love with reading because of the Harry Potter series in grade school. If I am not reading or teaching, odds are I am somewhere near a sporting event. Whether it is playing in a slow-pitch softball league, checking my fantasy football lineup, or watching sports on television, I am constantly surrounded by it. I hope to become a full-time teacher very soon so that I may begin impacting America's youth on a day to day basis.
