Hi there! My name is Bri and I am passionate educator of young learners. I believe all children have a natural desire to learn and that education should be hands-on, student-centered and equity-based. In our classroom we focus on building a safe and empathetic culture that promotes growth in both social-emotional and academic skills. Additionally each year I strive to help my students build a strong foundation of empathy, confidence and critical thinking skills in order for them to reach their full potential and become a 21st century leader.
My teaching journey officially began after graduating from Hope College in Holland, Michigan with my bachelors in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education and an endorsement in teaching English as a Second Language. Since graduating I have taught abroad in K-12 schools in both the Czech Republic and Thailand as well as in Michigan. In 2022 I moved to San Diego and became a member of the High Tech Mesa family! I feel very grateful and excited to be a part of such a caring and dedicated community.
When I am not teaching I enjoy hiking, rock-climbing, scuba-diving and spending quality time with my loved ones.
