I am a middle school life science and ELA educator, curriculum materials creator, ed-tech Masters student, and lifelong learner in the Chicago suburbs! I teach at a mid-size suburban middle school in a small district with a highly diverse population of students. I also sponsor our school’s National Novel Writing Month Club and co-sponsor our Pride Club, a Genders & Sexualities Alliance.
I am currently working on a Masters degree in Educational Technology & Leadership at Concordia University Chicago. Previously, I graduated from Northern Illinois University in 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, leading to a K-9th grade certification with endorsements in middle school ELA, science, and social studies. I am also in the process of finishing a middle school music endorsement.
My long-term interests include curriculum and instructional coaching at the district level, playing an active role in shaping education policy, and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of teacher professional development.
