I graduated high school from Belle Plaine High School, and graduated in May of 2012.
I graduated college from Newman University in December of 2015.
My degree is a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology.
I am currently working towards completing the transition to teaching program at Fort Hays State University while I am teaching here in Belle Plaine.
I have been a substitute teacher here at Belle Plaine for a year and a half, while also having the opportunity to coach girl’s basketball and baseball during the 2016-2017 school year.
I am a brand new teacher, with my career beginning this year at BPHS.
I have grown up through this school district my entire life, although I have just began to teach within the district.
I am preparing to teach Chemistry, Physics, and Science 9.
I began substitute teaching in January of 2016, within the Belle Plaine school districts.
Being involved with the younger generations of Belle Plaine that have had a similar upbringing to that of my own has impacted me and drove me towards teaching. I thoroughly enjoy establishing relationships with students who I knew growing up in the school district. I find it to be a unique situation where I was a student in the school district while the current students were also. Being able to teach these students now is a great opportunity for me to establish relationships with the students and parents of the community I have always lived in and am passionate towards.
I have currently been in a relationship for 6 years.
I have no pets or children at this time. Although a puppy is an unavoidable part of my future. See previous note about relationship status for an explanation as to why this is unavoidable.
I enjoy playing sports, video games, and spending time with my girlfriend in my spare time. So basically everything I did in high school. I am in denial that I have aged 6 years since I graduated I believe.
Sports wise I participate in Alumni football for Belle Plaine, and I also participate in a recreation basketball league at the Derby Recreation Center.
Video games wise my favorite games are League of Legends, Rocket League, and World of Warcraft.
I met my girlfriend in Belle Plaine whilst still in school. We have been together for 6 years this coming November. We enjoy going to concerts and traveling with friends.
