What is your educational background?
I earned my undergraduate degree in Communications from Hiram College in Ohio. I went on to earn my Master of Arts in Teaching at Colorado College.
What is your favorite subject?
I love teaching writing. I enjoy reading on my own and hearing great stories. It is nice to connect the two with my students.
What do you like best about teaching?
I love seeing students grow and become more confident, that moment when they realize they now understand something that had been out of their reach. I also really enjoy getting to know each person in my class as an individual and where they have come from.
How do you prepare students to meet future challenges?
I challenge students to think and problem solve on their own. I give them a lot of strategies and skills to practice. I love when they can bring their own thinking to what is being taught and then conference together to make it even better!
