In her own words . . .
“What led me to the field of teaching was my desire to become the teacher I so desperately needed when I myself was a student. I didn’t figure out that I had a love for learning science until my first year of college. I knew that I wanted to be a teacher who helped students discover their love for learning, and the potential they carry with them at a younger age. Over the last four years, I’ve realized that there are many hurdles – language barriers, learning disabilities, low self-esteem, etc. – that most of my students face to get to that point.”
In the words of others . . .

She gives endlessly of her energy to educate the children, adults and community of Landrum Middle School. She personifies what it means to put kids at the heart of what we do in education by advocating and providing them with student voice and agency.” Samuel Karns, Landrum Middle School Assistant Principal
Families and mentors are a critical part of helping students make connections between what is learned at school and what they experience outside campus walls. We welcome and encourage parents, families, and mentors to partner with us!
