I became a teacher to empower students through personal growth that will allow them transition into lifelong learners who are confident and self- aware. My goal is to help students feel safe, nurtured, and extrinsically motivated day in and day out.

Personal Bio

As a teacher, I have the amazing potential to helps youngsters develop a passion for learning by being consistent, building connections, staying true to my word and never giving up on a student- no matter what. My belief is that the bar should be set high, and when students are held accountable, they build grit, trust, perseverance and resilience. My major focus is to guide students to become responsible, self- advocates for are willing to seek information and ask for what they need. I have two younger brothers. I am a family-oriented person and would do anything to help those that I love. I enjoy teaching and helping students to believe in the positive things in life. I love music, holidays and the fall season most of all. I love to go to the beach, be outdoors and do yoga whenever I can. I am a visual and auditory learner who benefits from pictures and catchy tunes to help me remember new concepts
