I’m joining the McAuliffe team as a 7th and 8th grade Social Studies teacher this year. I went to Taylor University for my undergraduate in Upland, Indiana. While I was there I decided to study abroad in Lithuania my sophomore year, which affirmed my decision to become a teacher. Upon graduating, I returned to my home state of Georgia and taught at a private preschool for one year and then began my teaching career at Manchester High School. After two years, I decided to venture out west to beautiful Colorado, and I couldn’t be happier! For the past four years I’ve been teaching at KIPP Denver Collegiate, and I’m extremely excited to start my 7th year of teaching at McAuliffe! In my free time, I attempt to refinish furniture, craft, be outside, and play indoor soccer. I absolutely love History and cannot wait to share my passion with our students!
