I have been a member of the Leyden faculty since 2001. I have had the opportunity to teach freshmen, sophomores, and juniors at West Leyden. Currently, I teach freshmen and juniors. Teaching was the obvious career choice for me as I really enjoy working with people and am an avid reader. In addition to teaching, I was the varsity girls' soccer coach for seven years. It is such a pleasure working with wonderful students and colleagues both in and out of the classroom.
