Hiya! I completed one year of higher education at Valparaiso University with a focus in Japanese, Chinese, and Spanish studies. I then transferred to Purdue University and achieved a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education with a focus in Mathematics. I completed my Student Teaching Placement at Chesterton High School in early May of this year and successfully graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree. This will be my first year at CMS as well as my first year teaching!

Outside the classroom, my favorite hobbies include: voracious binge - reading sessions, collecting and endlessly listening to vinyl records, watching fantasy movies, experiencing world languages and cultures, and spending time with my family.
