Hello, I am originally from Southern MD, Calvert County but I moved to Towson in 2003. I graduated from Towson University with a bachelor's degree in accounting in 2007. I was an accountant for five years and then took a year long trip sailing/living in the Bahamas. When I came back, I decided to make a career change and substitute taught in Baltimore County while I got my Masters in Education at Notre Dame of Maryland. I taught 7th grade in Baltimore County for five years before switching to my new home, Magothy River Middle School! I now enter my seventh year teaching and I love it!
I am an avid sports fan and board game enthusiast. I run Strategy Club where students meet weekly to play card games and board games. You can visit our website here: magothystrategyclub.weebly.com
I had a partnership with UMBC to teach students how to write computer coding after school called Creative Coders and now I run a more free form Coding Club. Film is also a hobby of mine so I enjoy creating these instructional videos and hope to add more!
I try to bring real world connections to the classroom and use my creativity and high energy to keep the students engaged.
