Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read my page. It has been an exciting and adventurous ride through CASA's two years as a full time charter school. I am very excited to be entering into my third year teaching World Literature at CASA with the 9th and 10th grade students.
As a New Hampshire native, I call water fountains "bubblers", eat subs with soda, claim the heritage of Robert Frost, and am a proud Patriots and Red Sox fan. However, after attending Grove City College near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has quickly become my home away from home. My experience before CASA includes teaching English as a Second Language, working as a paraprofessional in special education, tutoring, and substitute teaching in Eastern, PA.
During my time all throughout school, I was highly involved in music, dance, art, and theater. In my free time, I can still be found fiddling with my guitar, smudging pastel drawings, drinking a London Fog tea latte, or enjoying the outdoors. I am thrilled to share my passion for art with my students and to incorporate creativity into all that we do in the classroom.
I value literature because of its diversity, the richness and realism of the characters, and the opportunity to explore the world beyond oneself. Through discussion, acting, writing, debate, field trips, and of course, reading, my students will engage with the literary world through an artistic lens.
