Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to be starting this awesome year of English at Gentry! This is my fifth year of teaching, and my fourth year at Gentry. Along with my role as an English teacher, I also serve as teacher sponsor for Student Council, and I am the head coach of Gentry Cheerleading. I believe that even though I am a teacher, I am always a learner and hope to learn a lot from my students this year!
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Language Arts Education from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I also achieved my Master's Degree in Learning, Teaching, and Curriculum with an emphasis in English at MU as well.
Outside of school I love to travel, play board games, go to trivia nights, and snuggle with my dog Callie. I grew up in Columbia and attended Gentry and Rock Bridge High School, so my knowledge of Columbia is extensive. I can't wait for an exciting school year!
