Teaching is my vocation. I knew from a very early age that this was what I was meant to do. I have been teaching my friends, kids, family, etc. for longer than they would like to remember. However, I didn’t immediately go to college out of high school. I didn’t go to college until I was 25. I was already married and had two kids when I finally decided it was time to go to college. I have personal experience that supports my belief that education is the way to change your life. I try to share this with my students through my passion and commitment in the classroom.
When I’m not teaching, my time is spent with my family. My husband and I have three beautiful daughters. Our youngest was born in 2016. Our two oldest girls are in college. I enjoy reading or watching documentaries on Netflix. I am a sucker for a good underdog sports story or the biography of someone who overcame hardship to be successful.
