Outside the classroom

Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.
-- Marian Wright Edelman

As an educator I believe that my job does not stop at the classroom doors. I strongly believe that it is important to not only be involved in the school community but also in the city community as well. This is why I have made it a priority to join and become part of several organizations both now and while I was attending Indiana University. Below are some of my most recent experiences. 

Girls on the Run of Hamilton County

The mission of the Girls on the Run program is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident. I am currently an assistant Coach for Girls on the Run at Noble Crossing Elementary. We meet every Tuesday and Thursday for an hour and a half. The girls are training for a 5k in May. What an AMAZING program!

All In Program

This program is for students in grades 3rd and 4th. It is an after school tutoring group for students who need extra help on math and language arts.  They meet every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday after school for an hour and a half. I volunteer with this group every Monday after school. Students are divided into groups to practice math and then they either participate in an interactive read aloud or practice more math on the computers. This is a great way to help struggling students gain confidence and improve their basic skills. 

Noblesville Boys and Girls Club

The Boys and Girls Club is where my passion for teaching began. I still enjoy being involved with this wonderful organization. I have been an employee, tutor, volunteer and Camp Counselor and through all of my experiences with the Boys and Girls Club, I truly believe that this organization helps the community in countless ways.
