I began my teaching career in sunny Fort Lauderdale, FloridaI teaching at an Urban Academy Program specializing in teaching at risk children in urban environments. I spent the next six years teaching in this program at Lauderdale Manors Elementary School. I also used this time to earn my M.A. in Reading and Literacy Instruction from Nova Southeastern University April, 2009.
In the summer of 2011 I returned to Northern Michigan and began working at the Greenspire School in its inaugural year. I have worn many hats at the school and enjoy working closely with both students and staff. As a social studies teacher I enjoy sharing my extensive travel experiences and love of history with my students. Greenspire’s use of Project Based learning and hands on education make every day an adventure. It is an exciting place to teach and learn! I feel honored to be a part of the Greenspire vision.
