Tell us a little bit about you. Things you like outside of school, etc…

I’ve been teaching for six years at Marshall Middle School, which happens to be the middle school my mom went to!  Before I was in education, I worked in the corporate world, and during college I paid my way by cutting/styling hair and doing makeup for weddings/photoshoots/retail sales with MAC. Before the pandemic, I loved to travel and experience different cultures.  I also enjoy crafting and spending time with my family and my fur baby.


Give us an idea of your education passion, can you tell us something of why you chose education…

When I was in school, I struggled with truancy and behavior in general.  I didn’t respect the value of education or prioritize plans for my future.  This all changed my senior year of high school when my cosmetology teacher sat me down for a talk, and our conversation changed my entire outlook on life, how I viewed myself, and my future.  The impact she made on me led me to want to become a teacher so I could help students that are lost like I was.  The relationships we form with our students are so meaningful, the lessons they learn in my classroom are not limited to just science.  Education is about so much more than just the curriculum; for many of these students, we are their home away from home.


To help you feel better what do you like? Card, Starbucks, candy, prayer, etc… list as many things as you wish

Starbucks, shopping for deals at Marshalls/HomeGoods, resin crafting with molds/glitter, doing my own gel nails, meditating, reading; it’s my escape from everything.
