Degrees and Certifications:
B.S. Social Science Education
I grew up in Colorado and absolutely love being from there. It is a beautiful state to live in and it was amazing to be able to grow up there. I graduated from a small high school (our graduating class was 150 kids). After high school I went to Missouri and graduated from Southwest Baptist University with a B.S. Degree in Social Science Education. I have always loved Social Studies, in school and out of school. Learning about all the amazing things that people were able to accomplish is fascinating to me. Social Studies is an outstanding subject, it has the ability to encourage students through stories of success, challenge them to think about deep topics such as the cost of freedom, politics, war, culture, the history of a place, etc.
This will be my first year teaching at Princeton High School and I can't wait to get started. I am very passionate about teaching Social Studies in a way that gets students involved in the learning process so that they can really enjoy and remember what we are learning.
Outside of school I love watching movies, reading books, walking my new puppy Pippin, baking/cooking, riding horses or motorcycles, think of new lesson plans for class. I also love to travel and just recently took a trip to Ireland with my family. Ireland was amazing and I loved talking to the people about the rich history of the country and seeing all the sites.
