I am from Richmond, and I currently teach 8th grade English in Henrico County. My journey to the classroom was a bit bumpy and odd. I originally planned to teach literature in college and earned my Master of Arts in Literature. I decided I needed more classroom experience, so I took an instructional assistant job at a local middle school. I fell in love with teaching middle school, and I decided to earn my teaching license at the University of Richmond. Once there, I continued to take classes and finished my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. I love teaching, and I especially love educational technology. The love for educational technology led me to William & Mary where I will start my Ph.D. this fall. I plan to explore the ideas of teaching creativity and teaching creatively in the classroom.
