6th Grade Math & Science Teacher
Hi! I am excited to continue my educational career at LEAD as your 6th Grade Math & Science Teacher. Learning is my passion and was evident in my childhood in Florida, where I was born, and Georgia, where I was raised. After graduating from The Westminster School in Atlanta, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Urban Studies at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. While at Penn, I also studied abroad in Tanzania, Africa where I learned some Swahili and East African government. After Penn, I joined Teach For America. I also earned a Master’s in Early Childhood Education from Georgia State University. I have enjoyed teaching every grade from kindergarten through eighth, but I must admit I have a special place in my heart for College Bound middle schoolers.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, jogging, traveling, and cheering on my husband’s favorite team, the Clemson Tigers. We just welcomed our firstborn, a junior, into the family (we also have a four-legged "child") and are even more compelled to contribute to making this world a better place because of him. I am beyond blessed to be a part of the LEAD team and I look forward to working together this year.
