Hello Team Aquila Families!
I am so excited to be a part of the Newton-Conover Middle School community! This will be my seventh year teaching middle school, but my 9th year in the profession. I started my teaching career in Mexico's second largest city, Guadalajara in 2011-2012. I returned to the U.S.A back to my birthplace in St. Paul, Minnesota. I taught 2 trimesters of freshmen students then moved to North Carolina in 2013. I got married in 2014 and we had a daughter Aria in 2017.
I am a soft-spoken person who appreciates deep conversations, but don't be intimidated by that because I can be rather intimidated by small talk! I love teaching because it allows me the opportunity to sow into the lives of students who I would otherwise never meet. I can be serious but the truth is I am playful and love making jokes.
Please come say hello and don't be afraid to reach out. The success of your whole child is both in our interest! So, let's have a great year!
