I am in my 4th year with DECA & DECA PREP. I teach Language Arts and Social Studies. Prior to the opening of DECA PREP, I taught 7th grade at DECA. My favorite thing about my job is getting to work with my AMAZING 6th graders and watching them grow as students and people over the course of their time at DECA PREP. I am a graduate of The University of Dayton and currently a student at Columbia University in the city of New York. During my free time, I like to read, play basketball, listen to music, hang out with my nieces and nephews, and volunteer at a summer camp! I am so excited to work with all of my new students and families this year. It is going to be a great year!
