2nd Grade Lead Teacher
I am thrilled to be teaching at CWC Mar Vista!
This will be my seventh year teaching. I taught fourth grade for three years and prior to that, I was teaching in the United Arab Emirates as a first grade teacher. My teaching experiences have shaped me into an educator who values building relationships with her students, inspiring student creativity and critical thinking, and fostering a classroom focused on kindness.
I just moved from Raleigh, North Carolina but I was born and raised just north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I attended Penn State Behrend for my undergraduate and went to the University of Pittsburgh for my MAT in Elementary Education. My husband, Adam, and I lived in Raleigh for 7 years. We are eager to start the next chapter in our lives. I am so grateful our west coast adventure led me to CWC Mar Vista.
When I am not teaching, you can find me traveling or watching sports with my husband, learning a new exercise, chopping vegetables and meal prepping, spreading kindness, or planning a themed event for family and friends!
Looking forward to continuing to grow in the CWC Mar Vista community!
