I am a huge shark fan and originally pursued marine biology before discovering my passion for education. I have two dogs (Samson & Meeka) that I absolutely adore that make my days brighter for just existing. I love reading, I’m a big Spotify stan, and I like watching basketball & hockey whenever I can. I advocate for mental health wellness, and I have a heart for people at all stages. If you have any questions about sharks or my dogs, or any song suggestions, feel free to swing by my classroom!

I do the work I do because I am passionate about equipping upcoming leaders with the necessary information needed to make informed decisions. I do the work I do because I learn just as much, if not more, from the way young adults view the world as I do from elders. I do the work I do because it requires critical, creative thinking and everyday is a new challenge to work towards. I teach because I learn. In my community, it is important to pass on learned knowledge to the next generation of leaders, and the way we interact with our human and nonhuman relatives in the natural world forms the basis for science inquiry.

I spend more time than I’d like to admit wishing I had a chocolate chip cookie and a glass of milk. I grew up next door to my best friend. She, my two younger brothers, and I had a club, and we raised money for our infamous pizza parties by charging our neighbors admission to attend plays we produced. I think college was a much better phase of life than high school. I made great friends in the calling room working my part time job as a DePauw Phonathon caller. In college and high school, I also worked as a nanny, writing tutor, and JC Penny sales associate. I live 561 miles away from my parents, and I wish I could put my hometown and Tulsa in the same place. I collect pocketknives, tea cups, quotes, and Wendell Berry books. I’m happily married to a fellow who makes my heart go pitter-patter, and we share our home with a fine canine friend named Pervus. I love to travel, read, take walks, and listen to killer beats. I never say “no” to a Coke, a cuppa tea, a shoe sale, or an ice cream. I hate house cleaning, but I sure love the way it looks when it’s done. I’m afraid of shots, dental work, snakes, and tests.

I work with our kids and teachers because I am called to public service. I believe in the power of public education to change both the lives of individuals and the world we live in. As an administrator, I believe my job is to set the conditions for teachers to work their magic by removing barriers and enabling them to build bridges to resources, best theories, and other experts.

Artist, gamer, technology buff, lover of animation, fantasy & science fiction, and all things heavy metal!  With these powers combined, I am a huge nerd!

Animation is art in motion.  It is a visual medium of endless possibility that the human imagination can conceive.  If you can dream it, you can animate it. Animation is an illusion of movement; it truly is magic.   As my friend often says, “magic is real!’, and it exists here at TSAS.  That magic is inspiring the students to learn, create and achieve their goals!  It’s really all about them, they are the future.

Teaching is absolutely one of, if not, the most soul-filling things a person can do.  Passing knowledge to others is essential to the human experience and it is an honorable privilege to have the opportunity to do so at such a wonderful place as TSAS.

MS and HS Special Education Teacher Support

As well as a teacher, I am a Board Certified Music Therapist and have experience working with long-term/chronic pediatric patients at a children’s hospital. Working at TSAS has inspired me to go back to school to pursue a master’s in special education. TSAS has also gifted me with a new passion: learning, and helping others to do the same. I’m obsessed with my cats, and I like to get outside as much as possible.

I teach to ensure ALL students have equitable education and can reach their ambitious life goals. We are all still learning.

I’m a huge nerd and love hearing about what my students nerd out about. In my spare time, I am reading, writing, and watching good stories in almost any format. I also enjoy playing games with my wife and our friends.

I teach because I believe that education is the silver bullet in solving problems in our world, and I want to be a part of the process.
