Professional Summary

Academic: I am a compassionate, caring and effective teacher with experience in creating and implementing diverse curriculum in the classroom. I am a student-centered instructor, focusing on the entire student, not just the academic piece. I work to provide tools to students that will help foster a strong education as well as respect for themselves and those around them. I have successfully graduated all of my students in the 19 years of teaching.

Extracurricular: I worked as the junior class sponsor for 5 years. I was responsible for prom and fundraisers. I created a program called "The Giving Tree" where students donated new toys, books, and clothing during the Christmas season to donate to local charities. I worked as the senior class sponsor for 15 years. I planned graduation, assisted students with senior responsibilities, worked with Jostens on orders, communicated with many parents throughout the years, planned legacy walks, and volunteer opportunities for the seniors such as Feed My Starving Children.

Volunteer: I have served as president of the social committee since 2008. I led and planned, along with another teacher, a carnival at our school for a student who needed a heart transplant. I assisted our FACS teacher in creating a carnival fundraiser for a teacher who had cancer. I volunteered as senior sponsor before I took the position to assist a sponsor who was undergoing cancer treatment.
