Favorite thing about St. Anne's: It's hard to name just one thing! Creative, supportive, and FUN colleagues that work as a team and love our SAES kids. I love being part of our wonderful middle school in which our students feel safe, loved, and supported to navigate the confusing ups-and-downs of the tween years.
Why did you choose to teach? I teach because of the impact that learning a language in school had on me. It gave me the opportunity to be able to communicate with a whole new world of people and be immersed in everyday life in other cultures. I want everyone to have the superpower of understanding and speaking another language! I also teach because middle schoolers are magical!
Hobbies or interests outside of school: Building things and doing art projects, camping, being in nature, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, dancing, and listening to music, and working in the garden.
Stuck on an island what book do you bring with you?/Favorite book: Any giant book with lots of poems in it because you can read poems over and over again, and they are different every time you read them.
