What do you like about working at University High School?
I love that students, teachers, and staff truly work together as a community at University, supporting and challenging each other to learn and grow. Our school has an open, welcoming atmosphere that encourages us to share and celebrate our individuality and interests. I can be myself and so can my students.
My husband Jack and I have three teenage children, Dani, Alex, and Ben. We enjoy family time, especially playing games, hiking, and caring for our menagerie of pets. When I’m not working on schoolwork, taking photos, or drawing, I love to run, work in the garden, or bake, often while listening to music, audiobooks, and podcasts.
