”About Me” I am an ESL and creative writing instructor based out of Indiana. My professional background includes early childhood education, virtual teaching, substitute teaching elementary and middle school students, and working as an embedded learning assistant for several college courses. I am working towards finishing my bachelor degree in international studies, but I currently hold an associate degree, two ESL teaching certifications, and a child development associate (CDA). I also have an educational background in psychology (emphasis on child psychology), creative writing, intercultural communications, and conversational Spanish. I am also a published author of poetry and fiction. In my free time, I enjoy reading anything by Neil Gaiman, writing, yoga, running, cooking, and spending time with my rambunctious Siberian Husky.

I am passionate about sparking a love of learning in students the way that so many of the teachers in my life did for me.

In my classroom, you may certainly learn the technicalities of english grammar, vocabulary, and usage both as a second language class or to prepare for classes in American schools. However, you will also find my classroom a place to explore poetry and creative writing in particular - a place to gather the tools you will need to tell your own stories and express yourselves.

You will also learn valuable learning skills to build your confidence and love of learning for any subject which holds your interest.

We will explore world cultures through their traditions, mythologies, foods, and more.
