I am a 6th grade Language Arts and History teacher, in my 19th year in education and my 17th year in the classroom. I have a bachelor’s degree in English (with an education minor in history), and a master’s of education in Curriculum and Technology.

Previously, I have served as the educational technology facilitator at York County School District in Virginia. Currently, I teach in Port Orchard, Washington as part of a co-teach team, working side by side with a special educator to teach 6th grade classes.

In addition to teaching, I also serve on my building AVID committee and help train other teachers in my district in effective use of the co-teach model. I am passionate about using educational technology to increase equitable access to education for all students, with a focus on students in particularly often overlooked groups. I am currently continuing pursuing a graduate degree. in Digital Education Leadership from Seattle Pacific University.
