About my students:

I could not be more excited to think, learn, make mistakes, and figure things out with you.

About BTR:

I am unbelievably lucky to be a part of a cohort of people who care so deeply about teaching, learning, and, most of all, their future students.

In My Previous Life:

After graduating from college, I spent two years in Changsha, China teaching Oral English classes at a local public high school. In addition to my time in the classroom, I most loved working with students to put on two full-length English musicals. As a result, I have learned an embarrassing amount of High School Musical choreography and can’t hear “A Whole New World” without getting emotional.

Favorite Thing in the World To Do:

Laugh until my stomach hurts (note: lack of abdominal workout routine makes this easier to achieve!)

Random thought:

I firmly believe that getting enough sleep is a key to happiness.
