I was born in Wallingford, CT and moved to Charlotte, NC when I was 7 years old. I grew up and lived in the Charlotte area until I moved to Raleigh to attend North Carolina State University. I loved the Raleigh area so much that I decided to pursue my teaching career here. I've wanted to be a high school English teacher since I was a freshman in high school myself, and I truly look forward to and enjoy coming to work every day with amazing students. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my dog, friends, and family.
