  • 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!
