Education and Career Background:

  • Bachelors of Arts in English from Rockhurst University
  • Masters of Education and Social Policy from Northwestern University (currently completing)
  • Elementary 1 Montessori Certification from Midwest Montessori Training Program

Approach to Learning and Teaching:  My personal approach to learning is through metacognition and for students to eventually reach this goal. I’m always trying to teach students to analyze and synthesize information instead of regurgitating memorization.

Hobbies/Interests: I run marathons and workout/run every day of the week. I’ve been on 3 continents and my goal is to set foot on all of them in my lifetime. I love to read and write. Finally, I love spending time with the kids.
