I am very excited and grateful to be returning for my fourth year of teaching at St. Francis de Sales Catholic School. I graduated with a master’s degree in Secondary Science Education with a focus on S.T.E.M. and I received my undergraduate degree in Art from Savannah College of Art and Design in Sequential Art and Art History. I have had the pleasure and joy of teaching all Middle School content areas in my career. I have worked professionally as both an educator and educational consultant to increase cross-curricular learning environments focusing on STEM, STEAM, and STREAM. I use an inquiry based educational approach that is student driven to try to engage all students in critical thinking and increase their individual ownership of their educational goals. I am very passionate about helping students reach their potential by supporting and challenging them in my classroom so they continue to grow.
