I’m a mother of three boys, and I love to spend time with my family playing board games, video games, and attending football games. I enjoy whitewater rafting, swimming, crafting, reading, and baking. I am a first-generation college student. My mother pushed me to be my best throughout my childhood. Being the first of my siblings to attend college wasn’t an easy task, and I worked two jobs while putting myself through undergraduate school. Challenges in life shape you into an amazing individual. This is one of the main reasons I chose to teach high school. It may not always be easy, but I want to be that person in the corner for the students who may not have someone else. I strive to be a pillar of support for all my students, to encourage them to reach their full potential and goals.
