I am originally from Philadelphia where I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education from Temple University. After I graduating, I taught 5th grade Literacy for several years in Charlotte, North Carolina. During this time, I built Social Studies and Literacy curriculum with a focus on local history. I recently relocated to San Diego after spending a year teaching English as a Second Language and traveling abroad. I love to spend time hiking, camping, climbing, reading, and learning how to upcycle clothes. I’m looking forward to building a community of excited and energized 5th grade writers this year!
