I do this work because I hope, and I love; and, I believe that the world can be a better place when every child knows that her voice matters, and when the balance of power shifts enough to allow all of us to listen. Serviam is an agent for that magnitude of transformation.

Educating, inspiring, and transforming the lives of children is incredibly rewarding. Knowing that your lesson, shared experience, and involvement in a child's life is potentially shaping their future and who they want to be is a feeling that no amount of money can provide.

When I first stepped into Serviam, I knew it was a special place. Since then, I get to work with scholars exploring the world around us in science. Witnessing that moment when a person finally grasps a concept is what inspires me as a teacher, as well as learning new things myself. It is my philosophy that anyone who is willing can learn anything.

I teach ELA to share my passion for reading and the English language with young people. It is my hope that by the time our girls finish the ELA program at SGA they view themselves as lifelong readers, writers, and thinkers.

I'm so honored to be a part of Serviam Girls Academy. My goal is for every student to enjoy mathematics and have a better understanding of real world math by the end of the year. My teaching philosophy is that all students are capable of learning and being challenged. I believe there is so much potential in the girls at Serviam and I am excited to see what the future has in store for them.

I believe being educated is the key to success in all areas of life, and I have always wanted to be the person who motivates, inspires and helps guide students to reach their goals. Education is not limited to a classroom, textbooks and assessments . . . learning is a lifelong process . Being a teacher is what comes natural to me; my students learn as much from me as I do them. Having the opportunity to be part of the Serviam family is an amazing opportunity for which I am grateful.

SGA is an exceptional school with dedicated and inspiring teachers and staff with a mission that I truly believe in. I volunteer here to help in any way I can to further the program and goals of the school. For the past 6 years I have seen the program in action, and for the most part, the resulting transition of the students from 5th grade through 8th grade has been outstanding.
