• Welcome! I'm excited to be teaching in the 2020-2021 school year! This is my third year at Palmer Junior Middle School, and I look forward to teaching Eastern Hemisphere! We will be studying fundamentals of geography, world cultures, and world history. Material will be delivered through APEX as opposed to a textbook. Due to this, our course will cover somewhat different material than in previous years. Notably, we will cover the early history and culture of the Western Hemisphere! I believe that Social Studies provides students the global context we increasingly need to be successful in out adult lives. I also believe that all students can be successful, as long as we work together!

    I graduated from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, in 2014, with a Master's of Teaching and Education. When I moved to Alaska as a teenager, I had the opportunity to be a student at Houston High School! (And lose in football scrimmages to Palmer... and Wasilla... look, it wasn't a good year for C team, okay?) I'm glad to be back in the district as a teacher!

    Some of my hobbies include modeling (the kind with plastic vehicles, not the kind with the photos,) reading, and playing with my two chihuahuas.

    I am always more than happy to answer any questions or offer help! Please contact me if you need anything, and I will respond as promptly as possible.
