Bio:

Are you a future teacher or school counselor? If so, I would love to mentor you! I have been an educator for more than two decades, working in school districts and community colleges--having taught 15 years in middle school, 2 years as a family specialist at an elementary school, and more recently as a high school counselor and as a college instructor. I love learning, and I love learning about learning so that I can improve as a teacher each year. The field of education is dynamic, creative, personally rewarding, and will always keep you on your toes. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy traveling, listening to audiobooks while hiking, and spending time outdoors with my husband, son, and daughter.
