Bachelor of Arts - History and Sociology Master of Arts - Teaching
This will be my fourth year teaching social studies electives and serving as instructional dean of English and social studies. I am also excited to continue my involvement with MUNSA this year. I graduated from Trinity University in 2009 before moving to New Orleans, where I worked in education as a technology consultant and later as an assistant teacher at a Montessori elementary school. I returned to Trinity to pursue my Master of Arts in Teaching in secondary social studies, and I feel very lucky to be able to work with the students and faculty at ISA. When I am not at ISA, I enjoy spending time outdoors, reading, cooking, and biking.
