I am sincere, hopeful, outgoing, understanding and tenacious.

I teach because of the love I have for seeing a student gain that inner light of knowledge for life.  As an English teacher I have the ability to show students a side of language they never knew existed.  Being able to watch my students grow and continue onto college, career, and family is the greatest accomplishment I have ever known. 

I studied Public Administration, English, Reading, and lastly, Educational Leadership.
