Welcome to seventh grade! I’m happy to be here and look forward to teaching middle school English and Literature classes this year. I graduated from Concordia University Wisconsin in 2020 with a degree in Secondary English Education. Growing up, I went to school in Paola, Kansas and attended Bethany Lutheran Church. My mission is to show students that faith is at the center of all that we do. It shapes how we interpret literature, how we communicate our ideas, and how we perceive the world. I want my students to grow academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually when they are in the classroom. It is a blessing to be here at Hope Lutheran, and I look forward to the opportunity to grow as a Lutheran educator.
