I am looking forward to building relationships with the students, having my own classroom, and working alongside teachers that I had growing up!

I would describe my teaching style as more laid-back, flexible, and organized. I always prioritize checking in with my students and making adjustments to my teaching whenever I notice that they need me to.

My favorite thing to do in my free time is spending time with my fiancé and friends, snuggling with my dogs, watching the sunset, and occasionally strumming the ukulele.

I would probably pick I Want it That Way by the Backstreet Boys for a karaoke song.5) If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?My favorite food is mac and cheese and I could eat it forever!!
