I find inspiration from kids and love being a positive influence in their lives. I am a passionate, adaptable and fun-loving individual who thrives in any atmosphere. I approach my students with a growth mindset, meaning there is always room for more. This is a compassionate approach to teaching kids how to challenge themselves through self-reflection. As both an empath and an observer, I can blend critical and emotional thinking together to ensure each student grows as an academic and a human.
Through focusing on emotional development, I have witnessed children problem solve using both their brain and intuition. I worked closely with a kid who is now able to accurately identify the difference between intense emotions not only within himself, but within others as well. This left him confident in himself, ultimately preparing him to excel in the classroom too.
During my free time, you can find me practicing my meditation practice. Meditation has taught me a lot about patience, kindness and imagination. With that, I enjoy gardening, camping, yoga, and baking. I am proud to be part of the JAM team and am looking forward to working with your scholars!
