Meet the Teacher
Welcome to my page for English 9 and 10. I am a lifelong resident of Michigan City
and am part of the first graduating class of Michigan City High School.
I graduated from Purdue Univeristy with my Bachelors degree in Liberal Studies
with a focus on English and Communications. I continued onto my Masters degree in
Clincal Mental Health Counseling at Purdue University where I also worked for 15 years
as a Professional Academic Advisor and taught college level classes. Last year I made the
leap from higher education to teaching middle school and I couldn't be happier with my choice.
I am a first year English teacher here at MCHS with the PACK Academy where I feel like I have
found my home. I try to see the unique individual in each student and am excited to be part of
a team of teachers who dedicate their lives to inspiring, empowering, and creating a safe space
for all of our students to learn. I am also a co-sponser of the LGBTQ club here at MCHS. I strive
to create a comfortable environment for my students to not just learn English concepts and skills,
but also grow as individuals.
I'm looking forward to a great year here at MCHS!
