About the Teacher


I am excited to continue my teaching here in OLC for reading, writing, and social studies for 7th and 8th grade. I graduated Montclair State University in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Education and Classical Studies. I have worked in several schools around New Jersey but certainly feel most at home here at OLC. Not only do I teach 7th and 8th grade, I help out Mr. Mason with Beatlemania by playing drumset. Aside from music, I am strongly passionate about reading and writing and am eager to share my skills with you. I am also the Student Council Moderator for the 2018-2019 school year and have a couple of ideas we can do to celebrate our community. Anyone who knows me knows I love the movies Frozen and Star Wars.
