2018-2019 is my fourth year at Inderkum High School and my sixth year of teaching overall. I will continue providing resource support in Math and English classes and will teach Study Skills as well.
In addition to providing resource support in classes and teaching Study Skills, I case manage students at all 4 grade levels. Other roles I have served in at Inderkum as well include co-teaching an English 9 class, providing RSP support in multiple Math I and Math II classes and a trio of English 10 classes. I have also taught Study Skills when that was a class offered by the district. I also have served as the department chairperson since December of 2015 and I teach Saturday School twice a month as well. I have also taught credit-recovery summer school the past 3 summers as well. Lastly, I will be serving as a Teacher Induction mentor for new teachers to the district as well.
My main goals at Inderkum are to prepare students to be college and career ready and to teach them to advocate for themselves so that they can have successful and meaningful careers and lives following high school.
