I have Multiple Subject and Special Education teaching credentials and an MFA in Creative Writing. I have taught a variety of subjects with students at varying educational levels. My favorite subjects in school were English and History. I am truly passionate about teaching and I love that my job gives me the opportunity to constantly learn new things. The best piece of advice I have ever been given is that we learn more from our failures than our successes. I value my family above everything else and my favorite place to be is on the Oregon Coast, hiking with my husband, my kids, and my dog.
