Other Information
2016 
 

I grew up in a Wellsville, a small town in south central PA. My parents are both Christians so I grew up going to church, praying, and calling Jesus my Lord, Savior, and friend. I fell in love with Spanish in high school and continued to study the language through college. While attending Messiah College, I spent a semester in Barcelona, Spain studying at the University of Barcelona. I graduated in May 2016 and am so thrilled to be teaching here at DC!

While studying Spanish, I realized that I not only enjoyed learning the grammar and mechanics of the language but also everything else that comes with studying a foreign language. You learn the history and geography, study the culture, literature, art, and music, and ultimately, the people who speak the language. I can speak and connect with people I never could have before. I can listen to their stories, share my own, and encourage them as they continue on life's journey.

I've wanted to be a teacher since the 3rd grade, but it wasn't until college when I realized exactly what being a teacher entailed. So much more goes into it than just working with students in a classroom all day. I struggled for a long time trying to figure out if this was the profession God was calling me to or not. One night as I was driving home after student teaching and feeling overwhelmed by everything I had to do, I realized none of that stuff mattered when I thought about my students- they are the reason I teach. One of the best things about teaching is helping students understand the world around them that God has blessed us with and seeing their eyes light up in wonder or excitement.
