ELA Teacher/Literacy Support
Where do I begin? I'm honored to be joining the SOAR Team. I've been in education for 12 years -- two as an elementary school librarian, two teaching overseas in Mongolia, and eight teaching high school in North Denver. I have a B.A. in English Literature and an M.A. in English Education, but here I am teaching Social Studies! I am passionate about literacy, sitting with hard questions, and encouraging student voice. I grew up in southern California, attended high school in Colorado, then moved to Washington for college. I love all things SUN: hanging out on the beach, hiking, wake-surfing, hanging out on a patio, whatever! I got married this summer -- we had a very small ceremony in our backyard -- not what we'd expected, but exactly what we needed.
