I love reading, traveling, cooking, running, and spending time with my family, including my eighteen nieces and nephews.
I earned a B.S. in Elementary Education and a minor in Theater Arts (summa cum laude) from Liberty University. I hold New Jersey teaching certificates in Elementary and Middle School Education (specializing in Language/Literacy and Social Studies). The 2019-2020 school year will be my seventh year at ACA. As the middle school language arts teacher, my goal is to cultivate my students’ ability to read, write, think, and speak well. One of my favorite aspects of teaching is introducing my students to great books (including the over 2,000 books in my classroom library!) and helping them develop as independent readers and writers.
