I grew up in the Dallas area, attending diocesan schools K-12, and then moved to Washington, DC to study at Georgetown University. My experiences in classrooms in DC and abroad lead me to join the ACE Teaching Fellow program at the University of Notre Dame. Through that program, I earned my master’s degree in Elementary Education while teaching 5th grade at a Catholic school in Fort Worth. I'm excited to join family, friends, and the CKS community in Dallas! I adore every moment of creating a classroom of loving learners and echo John Dewey's statement that "education is not preparation for life; education is life itself." Please let me know how I can serve your family!
