BIO: This is my twelfth year as a teacher and my fifth year at Vikan. Seeing students have "Ah-ha!" and "I did it!" moments is what fuels my passion to teach. In addition to teaching, I really enjoy working with students in extracurricular activities. I am currently an advisor for NJHS.


INSPIRATION: I am inspired by the different life experiences characters have in literature. I also love learning about different cultures in Social Studies so that I can understand the world better.
