I found a new home and place to explore when I moved to Colorado four years ago. Originally from Georgia, I graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Political Science and Social Studies education. I am an avid runner, hiker, and reader. I have spent the past four year in Colorado Springs teaching high school social studies. I’m drawn to social studies because of the connection between past and present and the opportunity to solve problems from a global perspective. I am thrilled to join the McAuliffe community and excited for the new year.
