I was raised in Chicago, IL (but am a White Sox fan, sorry) and went to college at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, where I majored in English and Secondary Education. After college, I moved out to Denver and taught ELD at Hamilton Middle School. For the past three years, I have taught 8th grade language arts at McAuliffe International Middle School. At both Hamilton and McAuliffe, I coached cross country and volleyball. My hobbies include hiking, reading, snowboarding, and running (I’m a classic transplant). I also come from a large Greek family that is the spitting image of the family in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, so if anyone likes Greek food/desserts let me know and I will be more than happy to cook for you 😊 Very excited to join the JFK family!
