I am originally from the Twin Cities in Minnesota, grew up in Richmond, Virginia and have spent the last three years teaching Kindergarten in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
I am at Islandwood to learn new teaching practices and mindsets grounded in equity. Two things that inspire me are teaching and being outdoors, so I feel extremely fortunate to join the IslandWood community as an educator and learner.
In the future, I hope to teach elementary environmental education in some capacity. I would like to explore alternative school settings.
Some of my recent and lifelong hobbies include: walking and running outside, reading, cooking, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
