• logo Welcome to another fantastic year! 
    I am very excited to have your student in my class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development. This is my 10th year in the classroom and 15th year in education, although it is my first year with Heatherwood.

    I love history and civics and as an undergrad at the College of Charleston I double majored in Political Science and History. I then went on to work in Washington D.C. for a couple of years before getting a Masters at The University of Queensland in International Relations. What graduate school taught me is that I love teaching more than research and have spent every year since leaving grad school in education, first working in experiential education and then as a classroom teacher. 


    This year we will be diving deep into how this grand experiment called the United States was born and how the past influences our world today. In particular I am excited to empower students to become active citizens as my love of history and politics was sparked by my own 8th grade history teacher. 


    Please email me with any questions and I look forward to getting to know the entire Heatherwood community.
