This I Believe

I believe that each student should be valued for the unique gifts, interests, and experience they bring to the classroom.  I strive to create a safe and engaging learning environment, where students have a voice and are active learners: exploring, constructing, creating, thinking critically, reflecting, doing.  By providing opportunities to explore their interests, build their knowledge of the world around them, and better understand themselves as learners, I hope to inspire a lifelong love of learning.


Fun Facts

A Teacher Who Inspired Me: My elementary school teachers were inspiring: they encouraged my curiosity and creativity, and they loved me for who I was.  

A Trinity Student Is… Bright, creative, compassionate

I Teach Because… I love spending my days with intellectually curious and creative people who care deeply about our world.

Something I am Passionate About Outside of Education is… I love traveling and have an adventurous spirit. Traveling is the ultimate learning experience!

Favorite Spot on Campus: My favorite spot on campus is the fifth grade classroom. It is a true reflection of my students and who they are at any given moment.
