I was born and raised in Michigan, and I moved to Virginia 6 years ago to start teaching. Most of my family still likes in Michigan, and I love to visit them whenever I can. This will be my 8th year of teaching, and my second year at DMMS. I have previously taught 10th, 11th, and 7th grade English, but teaching middle school is my favorite!
I love to read, and while I think it's too hard to pick just one favorite book, the Harry Potter series is very high up on my list. I also love historical fiction. During "the lockdown," I watched a TON of Netflix, including Stranger Things and repeats of The Office. I also tried out a variety of cookie recipes, learned to embroider, and did probably too much online shopping!
In my free time, I also love to cook, nap, and go hiking/exploring with my husband.
