I was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  I received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Elementary Education from Indiana University in 2013.  I taught in Fort Wayne for four years, receiving my school’s teacher of the year in 2015.  Before becoming a classroom teacher, I worked as a special education assistant for five years.  I moved to Austin and began teaching at Patton in the spring of 2017.  I have a passion for educating children in their whole entity, and enjoy working with them and sharing in all of their life’s experiences.
