Throughout my  27 years in education, I have served students in elementary, middle school, career technical college education, and community college advising.  These experiences have taught me that education is a life-long endeavor.  Throughout my life, I owe a great debt to my parents (two of the greatest teachers I ever had), educators, tutors,  co-workers, administrators, pastors, families, and friends with which I have had the pleasure of knowing and working these many years.   I have learned that education is a springboard to a life of curiosity and opportunity.

 

It is my mission to see all children reach their highest potential and I thank all our parents and students for giving us the opportunity to do the each and every day.

My students have taught me many lessons over the years, including the meaning of perseverance.  Since 2006, I have worked with university students, trade school students, veterans, community members, and students with disabilities.  My positions have ranged from writing instructor to special education aide to Academic Dean.  While pursuing a teaching license and Master’s degree in English, I attended a small liberal arts college, online university program, and community college – so I am familiar with the many options available to students these days.  In addition, I am an advocate of learning outside of the classroom. AmeriCorps led me to jobs in the National Forest Service and National Park Service.  These experiences made me who I am today, and I look forward to helping students explore and enjoy their own worlds of learning.​
