|Hello! I am a loud, high-energy, and passionate middle school Literature and Writing teacher. I love my job, and the community that working at a Catholic school has brought into my life. Beyond pushing my students to fall in love with J.R.R. Tolkien’s works and trying to help them frame their thinking in writing, I lead the school newspaper and coach competitive speaking and acting. While my job takes up most waking hours of my life during the school year, seeing my students develop and grow as individuals academically, emotionally, and spiritually is incredibly rewarding and worth my time and effort.
I count myself as extremely blessed to be surrounded by people who push me to be better each day. My family, my friends, my co-workers, and my students often challenge my sense of faith and God, forcing me to draw closer to the Truth He has set before me. My parents taught me to respect human life at all stages, and as I grew older, I also learned how complicated and difficult supporting a life can be for those without resources. Due to this, I am thrilled to be serving with the support crew once more this year and hope that I can positively impact the riders and people we meet along the way, doing my small part to serve.
