I grew up in Western Pennsylvania and received my undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University and my master’s degree from University of Colorado – Boulder. I believe in the transformative power of literacy and the importance of students’ individual and collective engagement with history and the historic process. I love books by John Green, my Hogwarts House is Ravenclaw, and my favorite thing to learn about in history is weird medical history and Americans who stood up for equality throughout our country’s troubled history. In my class, students will grapple with important questions about our country’s history, read the stories of others, and learn to share their own stories and ideas through the beauty of the written word. I live in Allied Gardens with Mr. Brady, my dog Herman, and my cat Mr. Abby. I enjoy lifting heaving things, practicing yoga, spending time outside, a great non-fiction book, finding new podcasts, a good cup of coffee, and laughing. I am constantly inspired by my hometown hero Mr. Rogers and strive to be a teacher he would be proud of.
