I love building relationships with my students and cheering them along as the grow and learn.
I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially camping, hiking, paddleboarding (my newest discovery!), and SCUBA diving. I also love to travel to new places, spend time with friends and family, read, laugh, learn, and teach.
I love so many books, but a consistent favorite is The Fellowship of the Ring. I particularly like the characters, the lessons, and the adventure!
I'm the oldest of seven children, and I used to live in both Zambia and Alaska.
I am really excited to be a part of such an enthusiastic and welcoming learning community, particularly at an IB school in Laporte! It's a dream come true!
I work to make my classroom an environment where students feel safe, cared about, and supported. I am looking forward to becoming more familiar with and incorporating the elements of IB education into that plan as well.
