My Greatest Supporters

You know who you are. Mom, Pops, Tucker, Timmy, Amanda, Mackenzie, Maddie, and Brevin: I could not have made it through this journey at SMC without you all. Having class till 10pm, getting up at 6am for student teaching, countless hours of lesson planning and studying, to the endless stories I could share about my students. You were there through it all with me. I love you all forever, thank you!

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Even though my time at Saint Mary's was cut short, my favorite memory has to be the time spent and shared with the members of my cohort! Together we experienced the unimaginable and persevered through it, one day at a time.

My Next Chapter

My next chapter in life is going to consist of spending time with my family and teaching full time! From learning how to read, to learning how to be a full time student and teacher in a classroom again (whohoo!), to sharing our days together learning and laughing together.
