Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to Language Arts this year! This is my fourth year at Fort McCoy, and I will be teaching 7th and 7th Advanced Language Arts, as well as 8th grade English 1 Honors. It's a wonderful school to be a part of! I love to read, and each year my goal is to turn "I don't like reading" students into "Wow, I really enjoyed that book!" students.
I am a graduate of the University of Florida, with a double degree in English and Sustainability Studies. I recently graduated from Bowling Green State University with an MA in English. Currently, I am enrolled at the University of Idaho in pursuit of an MS in Environmental Science. I've played the cello for 15 years, and have given lessons (if you're interested)! I love volleyball, and have coached at the middle and high school levels. At Fort McCoy, I assist with the volleyball program, and host Sign Language Club. In my down time, I love to find new places to explore, and am constantly making new travel plans locally and around the world.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason. The Remind App is an easy way to do this! If you have not already added yourself to the class, ask me how!
