Hello and welcome to my teacher page! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach Civics and Economics as well as American History I here at Reynolds High School. I am an Asheville native and graduate of our fantastic Buncombe County school system. I attended Anderson University (S.C), then later UNC-Asheville, where I received my degree in history with an education license. I am a former collegiate soccer player (Anderson University) and an assistant coach with our Varsity and Junior Varsity soccer programs. I enjoy playing sports (mostly soccer), being outdoors, and playing music with my band in my free time. 

I believe that all students can learn AND enjoy themselves while doing it! My goal is to create a fun, active, and inclusive classroom environment that will provide students with a sense of responsibility and community.  My approach to teaching is that learning can only truly be successful if it incorporates the interests, perspectives, and life experiences of students. As such, I encourage all students in my classes to work with me in planning our curriculum and course activities.
