When/how you knew you wanted to work in Education: I knew early on that I wanted to be a teacher but it was my junior year of high school when I realized I enjoy reading and writing essays. That moment I knew I had to teach English! I just love having the opportunity to get to know new people and share knowledge about my favorite subjects!
Education: The College of Saint Benedict; Major: English; Minors: Secondary Education and Teaching English as a Second Language I am so excited to get to know each and every person who walks through my door. Middle School is such an important time in a young person’s life and I am so honored to be a part of this journey with my students!
