I am originally from Smithton, Illinois, not too far from St. Louis. I went to Freeburg Community High School in Freeburg, IL, where I played all four years as a defensive specialist and won the State Championships in 2008 and 2009. Then I went to Mizzou and studied English and Secondary Education and graduate in 2014. The following year I was privileged to participate in the Mizzou Education Fellowship Program, and I earned my Master’s in Education that year. I have been teaching English at Simonsen Ninth Grade Center in Jefferson City for four years.
I love teaching and coaching, and look forward to many more years doing both!
Fun facts: I am a proud Hufflepuff and I am obsessed with Corgis.
