I was born and raised in Springfield, Illinois, and have lived in Chicago since 2015. Some of my favorite things to do include exploring the city on my bicycle, playing soccer, and going to the movies with friends. I consider myself lucky to live in a city that offers so many opportunities to experience and learn about other cultures, and I love to share these opportunities with the students I work with.
I believe these unique and global opportunities enhance every student's learning experience. I strive to bring the world into my classroom to show children the possibilities that await them and to help them discover and express the world of thoughts and emotions inside themselves at the same time.
