Hello GRCC students, staff, and faculty!
I graduated with a Bachelor’s in English and Certificate in Secondary Education from Aquinas College in 2004. In 2015 I earned my Master’s in Teaching and Endorsement in Educational Technology from Aquinas College. I taught English at the high school level for a decade, and during that time I enjoyed instructing nearly every class offered in our English department. My love of language began well before my education in it, however. From my earliest memory of stories, I have seen and felt strong connections between literature and writing and life; my greatest joy is to share this passion with students. My ultimate goal as a teacher is to open minds to new perspectives through literature and writing.
When I’m not teaching English, you’ll most likely catch me reading and writing for my own enjoyment, spending time with my husband and three boys, designing and creating jewelry, or tinkering with graphic design projects. I aspire to someday add an exercise regime to my ever-increasing list of hobbies.
