My journey to become a teacher wasn’t necessarily traditional. I earned my bachelors degree in Journalism—Public Relations from Utah State University and spent the first five years of my professional life managing corporate communications and public relations for several large companies in Utah.
I have always loved English and helping others learn and succeed. I am so excited to join Ascent Academy West Jordan and work with the 8th and 9th graders! We are going to have a great year reading, writing, and learning to be effective communicators.
When I’m not at school, I enjoy reading, writing (I’m a regular NaNoWriMo participant), traveling, seeing movies, and hanging out at home with my husband and our kitten, Cupcake.
