I began my experience at Eagle Ridge in the Spring of 2012 when I student taught 5th grade. This is my second year as a teacher at Eagle Ridge and my third year teaching overall. I have loved teaching at Eagle Ridge and enjoyed getting to know all the amazing students! During my free time, I love running. I was even able to win a first place award in a race. My hope is to continue to run and continue to get better! I also enjoy reading. As a language arts teacher, I enjoy finding new books that spark my interest. Some of my favorites include Harry Potter and the Hunger Games series. One of my overall favorites, though, is Where the Wild Things Are. I hope to share this love of reading with my students and have them travel to the amazing places in these stories.
