Greetings to all of our students, parents, families, and community members! 

This is my fourth year working at Jefferson Community School. I love working within our school community and appreciate all of the ways that our diversity is essential to our learning. A large part of my role is providing support for students that may be struggling academically, socially, or behaviorally. This includes students that receive special education services. I also get the opportunity to co-advise two leadership groups in 7th and 8th grade, including Student Ambassadors and Youth Participatory Evaluation (YPE). 

I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology. Prior to graduate school, I taught in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

In my time away from school, I love reading historical fiction, spending time with family, connecting with friends, getting out to see live music (especially blues/funk), and making as many visits to New Orleans as I can fit in a year!
