I aim to be an engaging teacher who brings learning to life through relevant content and pedagogical practices. I pride myself on my ability to treat my students with respect and empathy, and the value that I place on their opinions and ideas.​ I recognize that teaching is a dialectical and introspective profession that requires humility and a passion for lifelong learning. I place a lot of value on my students' feedback, and I think it's important for educators to be transparent in that we're always learning, too.

Virtual Wellness Program

The Illinois Physical Activity and Life Skills (iPALS) Wellness Program is a free summer learning and enrichment program for underrepresented youth in Champaign, Illinois. Due to COVID-19, the regularly scheduled in-person summer wellness program was transitioned to an online program in the fall of 2020. I created the virtual wellness program structure, the program's learning management system domain, and the program's curricular learning materials. I was responsible for the hiring, training, and supervision of twelve employees/teachers. I also led one-on-one tutoring sessions with youth participants over Zoom, created and disseminated marketing materials, created purchase orders, enrolled participants, and communicated with parents. For examples of some of my work, please click the images below.
