I am very excited to be continuing my calling to teach at Wasatch Charter School and graduating to the Fifth Grade with our Sequoia Class family. While spending the last four years in the Waldorf community as a parent and teacher, I continue to feel the strong sense of community and values, particularly the school’s dedication to building our children’s capacity to think and strengthening the will to persevere in any environment. I am looking forward to find ways to embed these values in my own teaching practices and continue my professional development.
Before joining Wasatch Charter School, I have had the honor of serving our country as a Marine, spending time across the United States and overseas in places like Japan, Tonga, Thailand, Germany, Romania, Spain, Italy, and Iraq. During this time and prior, I have been blessed with positive, kindhearted leadership and love from my parents, teachers, and military leaders. They all focused on my capacity to persevere and think. Hence, I will continue that trajectory for our children while nurturing a collaborative learning environment built on trust and compassion where everyone is treated with dignity and respect regardless of his or her positions, views, interests, and experiences.
