It is a privilege to partner with you in preparing your student for a life of significance in our 21-century world. That I get to do this at Doral Academy through an arts-integrated curriculum that cares for the whole child is fantastic!
I come to Doral Academy with nine years of experience in education, five of which were spent in a traditional classroom setting. I earned my Master of Education from Colorado State University and my Bachelor of the Arts in English from the University of Colorado, Boulder. As an educator, I value student-centered, dialogical instruction, which honors each student’s unique background, voice, and way of learning. Being a writer, a performer, and a visual learner, I naturally incorporate the arts into my teaching, and love using living tableau, skits, character interviews, kinesthetic movement, fine arts, etc. to facilitate discussion, depth of understanding, and student engagement. I am also the mother of two teenagers and a tween, and this gives me a special appreciation for the developmental stages of my secondary students.
I greatly look forward to partnering with you and working alongside your student!
