Hello families! I am ecstatic to begin the new school year as a new addition to this amazing district! My goal as an educator is to support every learner in a way that will provide customizable opportunities for growth and success. I enjoy creating a classroom environment where students feel comfortable and confident in their abilities. In my classroom, you will find students’ utilizing movement/multi-modal opportunities to support their understandings, laughing at my made up songs/raps (to support content), teamwork, and so much more! I hope you’ll have the opportunity to join our classroom community is some way this year!
I am a proud alumni of Kent State University where I graduated Summa Cum Laude, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2015. I have been fortunate to have taught in a variety of school districts in Northeast, Ohio and nine districts in Central Ohio. I completed a long-term 3rd grade assignment last year in the Intermediate building. I’ve grown to know the staff through my time at NA and I am thrilled to continue this journey with such wonderful educators. I am an energetic, passionate, and innovative teacher who loves to motivate students in unique ways!
My other passions in life include cooking, painting, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. I come from a family full of teachers including my mother (retired Elementary Teacher for Columbus City Schools), older sister (Second Grade Teacher for Marysville Schools) and my father (licensed for Art Ed. K-12). Needless to say, we have had a lot of fun over the years collaborating as a family and utilizing each other’s creative minds. I enjoy volunteering in my community and serving others. My favorite place to be is Cape Cod, Massachusetts with my feet in the sand and a fried fish sandwich in hand! I am overwhelmed with excitement to be joining an amazing team of teachers and community!
