Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back to KMS 7th grade students and parents! I am so excited for the 2019-2020 school year with our new 7th graders. This is my 4th year teaching here at KMS, but my 8th year teaching social studies, and it just keeps getting better every year. I am so excited to welcome my world history students to our IB implemented classes.
A little about me, as a born-and-raised Chicagoan, I began my career in education after graduating from Illinois State University with a degree in Secondary History Education and a minor in Political Science. Upon graduation, I left the cold and snowy, "Windy City" for the beautiful beaches and charm of Charleston, South Carolina. After four years of teaching, and obtaining my Master's degree in Educational Leadership there, it was my time to say goodbye to the coast for the deserts of Tempe, Arizona and found my home at Kyrene Middle School teaching World History, as well as coaching cheerleading, and sitting on various committees.
In my spare time, I love reading, laying out by the pool, bike riding, yoga, and spending time with my amazing fiance.
