Welcome to the 2020-21 school year at RHS. This will be my fourth year at Renaissance and my sixth in education. Before officially becoming a teacher, I received a BFA in English at Boise State University. I also spent 2 years teaching English at MVHS and volunteered as an English tutor with the refugee community in Boise. This year, I am excited to teach Honors English 10, IB HL Language and Literature I, and Personal & Professional Skills alongside some of my amazing collaborators

I am especially proud to be a part of the IB Community at RHS. I try my best to embody this excerpt from the IB Mission Statement in all of my classes:

“These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right” 

Outside of work, I enjoy going on spontaneous adventures, biking, reading/writing, cooking elaborate foods, and hanging out with friends and family. My recent obsessions are (in no particular order):

  • Hiking in remote places
  • Free yoga videos on YouTube
  • Baseball history
  • Renovating cheap old houses (I am trying to acquire one of those!)
  • Planning my next road trip

Please feel free to email me if there's anything I can do for you at
