"A life without cause is a life without effect."
I graduated from Michigan State University in 2009 where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Education. I recently finished my Masters in Educational Technology through Michigan State. I was born and raised in Ohio. A huge contrast from the corn fields I grew up on, Chicago is a city I am happy to call home. I have a great passion for education and helping children reach that "ah-ha" moment. I have dedicated my life to seeking experiences that will contribute to my personal goal of being a well-rounded educator. I have had the wonderful opportunity to study and teach abroad in Cape Town, South Africa. It was truly a remarkable and life changing experience. I love sports and often enjoy playing soccer and tennis. I have been singing all of my life and I have found a joy in traveling and photography. I love being by the lake, whether I am biking or walking my puppy, Grandy. I am a very positive, energetic person who loves the surprises that each day brings! This is my third year a part of the Shoesmith Family. I look forward to the amazing year that lies ahead of us!
