Hello! Here you will find information relating to my life and my educational philosophy. 

"Experience: the most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my god do you learn." - C.S. Lewis 

I am a native Oregonian.  I lived in the state my whole life until 2014 when I came here to Nome.  I am a first-generation college student from a small farming family.  Growing up my parents taught me the importance of education, respect, and work ethic.  

I attended Southern Oregon University and earned a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in Photojournalism.  After graduating from college, I took a five-year hiatus from education, in which I worked as a photographer and a traffic control flagger.  In 2012 I started attending Oregon State University and obtained my Masters in Teaching Secondary English in 2014.  

I believe the experiences we have are a significant factor in the people we become.  My passion for Literature is coupled with a strong work ethic and desire to connect with students.  I consider myself to be a lifelong learner.  If I could sustain myself as a career student, I would!

The past five years in Nome I have taken on the challenging, yet rewarding, task of coaching cheerleading.  Last year we took first place in the Large Schools Division! I look forward to another great year with these incredibly motivated athletes.  Our goal is to go back to State and represent Nome-Beltz! I will also be heading up Spirit Club and Senior Class advisor for the 2018-19 school year.  If you couldn't tell, I LOVE to be involved with the students.
