About Me
I was born in Great Falls, Montana, and graduated from Charles M. Russell High School in 2006. After high school I moved to Missoula, Montana and attended the University of Montana for 3 years. Then I moved to Houston, Texas in September 2010, and finally to Austin, Texas in March 2011. I graduated from Texas State University in December 2017. I just recently returned to Austin from teaching at an IB school overseas in Ethiopia for six months. I taught second grade at the International Community School of Addis Ababa. It was a truly amazing experience, but I'm very happy to be back in Austin! This is my first year of teaching at Spicewood Elementary, and I am so excited to be joining the third grade team this year at this amazing school! ​​
