About Me:

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Linguistics with minors in French and Religious Studies and a certificate in Arabic Language and Linguistics from the University of Pittsburgh, as well as a Master of Arts in Teaching from Mount St. Mary's University. I grew up in Urbana and graduated from Urbana High School in 2008! This is my fifth year of teaching and my third year at Urbana Middle School.

I absolutely LOVE traveling and I enjoy bringing back what I learn abroad to my students here in the United States. This past summer, I spent a month working and traveling in Morocco and then went on to explore Tunisia, Malta, and Iceland. While every place has its own unique and beautiful culture and history, my favorite part of the world to explore is the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa).
