I teach special education at a local high school. I love my students, and I hope to bring out the best in them. I am also a doctoral candidate in education at UNC-Chapel Hill (GO HEELS!!!). I will be resigning my position as a teacher to attend school full-time starting in July. My personal goal is to teach on the collegiate level after graduation. I research language immersion programs, PYP curriculum, and special needs populations in American Indian communities.
I grew up in CA and went to college in TN. I've lived in several states since then and traveled to many countries. I am a professional intern with Trinity Music Academy. I sing opera and other classical works professionally. I also went to a high school that had a great outdoor education program, so I really love hiking, fishing, and camping, etc. as well. I am willing to try any new experience within reason. For instance, I would love to backpack the Appalachian Trail and become fluent in a foreign language if I can.
