I’m the Kindergarten and 1st-grade teacher at HMA Windward. I was born and raised in Maryland and then went to Tennessee for college, where I received my B.A. in Elementary Education from Southern Adventist University. I also have my Masters degree in Reading Curriculum and Instruction from Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, TX. I began my teaching career in 2006 in Oklahoma City. I taught there for five years before moving here to Hawaii in 2011.

I have a huge love for drama and photography. I performed in many skits and plays throughout high school and college.

It is my hope that every student who passes through my classroom comes to know the love that Jesus Christ has for him or her.

Love, the basis of creation and of redemption, is the basis of true education.
