I was born and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan. Growing up, I was involved in theater, dance and show choir. I love music, poetry, reading, writing, playing with my dogs and traveling! I earned my BA in English Literature from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee and my Master of Arts in Teaching from Trevecca University, also in Nashville. My husband and I moved to Austin in 2011. This will be my eighth year teaching middle school ELA, and my fourth year teaching 7th grade at NYOS! It is an honor to walk alongside and guide our students as they grow as writers and readers!
