Center Administrator and Teacher
I graduated from Bowling Green State University of Ohio in 2008. At the completion of college, I received a degree in secondary education (with a focus in Integrated Language Arts), and a minor in Sociology. During my last semester of college, I completed my student teaching at Our Lady of Mercy School in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I have been with Mojave River Academy for four years. Prior to MRA, I was a classroom teacher at the middle school level, teaching English, U.S History, and World History.
I feel that at MRA, the teachers and staff truly get to know the students on an individual basis. This includes both their educational needs and their unique personalities. The staff at the Palm Springs site works together as a team to assist these kids in reaching their goals and obtaining their diplomas. It’s a great sign when you look forward to coming to work in the morning.
