About Me

I am an eighth grade middle school English and Media Literacy teacher at a K-12 independent school. At the school, I also direct the middle school student council and yearbook club. I received my degree in English and education from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and a master's in curriculum, instruction, and assessment. I love the media and enjoy sharing my passion for the media, social media, and advertising with my students. I am passionate about integrating various forms of technology into my classroom every day. I'm also a mom to two wonderful young children who keep me very active.
