I recently graduated from Northern Arizona University (NAU) with a master's degree in Literature. In 2013, I also graduated from NAU with a bachelor's degree in English-Secondary Education. During my master's program I taught a freshman composition and critical reading and writing course for NAU. I deeply enjoyed working with college freshman and being able to witness them grow into themselves, their interests, and their lives during their first years of college. I had the outstanding opportunity to teach two college composition courses for two years at NAU, and I am more than enthused to be returning to secondary education. It has been my goal and aspiration to teach language arts at the middle school level since I first received my undergraduate degree. I am looking forward to a great year that is full of surprises and adventures for all.
