Social Studies Teacher
Platte County High School

 I got my start teaching in South Korea and Japan after I graduated from Missouri State University in 2010. Since 2016-17 I have been teaching at Ruskin High School and I'm truly ecstatic to start a new chapter of my life at Platte County High.  I chose education because I believe in contributing to my community and the only way we can make a change in the world is through education. I believe education is the key to a young person’s life.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading non-fiction and playing soccer or video games. I've developed an interest in gardening in recent years and I quickly found out it's a passion of mine.
