I love working with kids. It allows me to be silly and adventurous. I get to mentor and perform. I value facilitating deep thought and I love getting my mind blown when students share thoughtful and unique insights on the world that adds to my understanding.

I have a bachelors degree in English from the University of Oregon and my masters in teaching from Southern Oregon University. I have completed the administrators licensor program at Colorado State University. In 2006, I received a Fulbright to travel and study in India.
