Educational Background:

Treynor High School

What I love about the subject I teach:

I love teaching English because it fosters a variety of life-long skills. Students are going to use skills related to reading and writing both in school and beyond their school years. Whether students go on to college, join the military, or enter the work force, students will be utilizing these skills for the rest of their lives. 

Why I chose Riverside:

I was familiar with the community since I grew up close by and have extended family members in the district. Then, I toured and interviewed and knew immediately that I wanted to be at Riverside. The enthusiasm and kindness of the staff and students really made me feel at home. 


What makes me PROUD to be a Bulldog:

There are many things that make me proud to be a Bulldog, and I have only been here a short while so far. The care and commitment that is shown by students, staff, and community members to one another is phenomenal, and I am thankful to be a part of it all.
