Degrees and Certifications:
I can’t wait to share the passion I have for reading, writing, and critical thinking with the 7th and 8th grade ELA students at the Beech! I graduated from Purdue University in 2000. Boiler Up! Since then I have added a couple of graduate degrees from USC, as well as my Reading Recovery certification from Clemson. After spending two years in Nicaragua as a Peace Corps Volunteer, I began teaching in 2004. I enjoy playing tennis, reading, hanging with Max (my german shepherd), and watching my son play sports. Go Bengals!
