Ever since my first job teaching English in Japan, I have loved learning from and with students of different backgrounds. In addition to teaching 8th grade language arts, I have worked with English language learners at the college, intermediate, and elementary level. I was honored to be named John Kerr Elementary School's "Teacher of the Year" in 2017 and Daniel Morgan Intermediate's "Teacher of the Year" in 2022. I currently collaborate with classroom teachers to explore what strategies help boost student learning.
My professional interest lies in vocabulary development, but I am passionate about many other things as well, including raising my two young sons and trying to get the right reading material into the right set of student hands.
