About Me

My motto is Live.Laugh.LEARN, because these are the things that are most important to me as your teacher.  I love to live and have new experiences, I adore laughing, and it is so important that we LEARN as much as we can together.  I try to do these things when I’m not teaching as well.  

Regarding living: I am originally from Chicago, but I have spent time living other places as well (that’s how I learned to speak French and Spanish).  Regarding laughing: I laugh a lot during my favorite pastimes (marathon training and playing volleyball with friends).  Regarding learning: I got my bachelor’s degree at Princeton University and my master’s degree at Lipscomb University here in Nashville. I think everything in life is about learning and I hope you will love learning as much as I do by the time you become fourth graders.
