Hello Students! I grew up in New Jersey, on the Jersey Shore in fact, and found my way out to Washington in 2005. I hold a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing from Rutgers University, New Brunswick (2004) and an MiT (Master in Teaching) from the Evergreen State College (2009).I am passionate about student engagement in literature, writing and the arts, always looking for ways to collaborate with colleagues, families and community professionals to provide a broader experience of text for students. Above all, I expect students to be conscientious readers, analyzing and evaluating all texts in the classroom and beyond. I also advise the Write Club, NTHS' Creative Writing Club, co-direct the Fall Musical and co-organize the Spring Arts Showcase. This year I am excited to announce the return of Poetry Out Loud, a Nationwide Competition focused on poetry recitation and presentation.I am honored to teach at NTHS, to be a RAM and embody the spirit, responsibility, resilience and care that I see in students everyday.
