I live and teach in Spokane, Washington. As an English language learning educator, I am the first teacher for refugee and immigrant students at Joel E. Ferris High School in the Newcomer Center. The Newcomer Center is a specialized English language development program for brand new immigrant and refugee students to our nation, who have limited English language proficiency.
My passion is making connections with my students and their families, and taking those connections out into the school and into the Spokane community. I strive to ensure my students feel welcome, wanted, and loved, and work to instill in them the belief that they are worthy of every success and happiness they dream of in life.
I urge all those I encounter to be fearless, to be kind, and to build relationships rather than fences. I hope this website helps in that endeavor. Join me in my journey toward fearlessness and hope.
