    I graduated from Western Washington University in June, 2016. Two months later, I flew to Italy for my 14 weeks of student teaching. What a beautiful country! And the food…Incredible! My school placement landed me in an English department full of inspiring women, all filled with a passion for teaching but each with their own teaching style. It was such a wonderful opportunity to work with so many excellent teachers and I was able to learn so much with them in a short time.

    I returned to the States and in January, 2017, I received my official teacher certification. My dream of being a teacher began in Kindergarten and it has finally come true! I love working with middle and high school students. They are such a fun group to teach. They are developing their own passions and turning into their own person. It’s a time of excitement and discovery and it is a privilege to experience it with them.

    As a Cornerstone alumna, I am thrilled to be starting my career here. It is such a blessing to see God our Father in literature and history and to be able to share His presence and greatness with His covenant children. I pray we will all grow together in wisdom and understanding.

    Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. -- Proverbs 9:9-10

    I am so thankful for the support of staff and parents. This is such a wonderful community to begin in. I look forward to a year of reading and writing, learning and growing, creating and sharing with my students.
