I began teaching at LARA in 2012 and served six years as an ELL teacher before becoming LARA’s assistant director in July 2018. I enjoy connecting with the students we assist by supporting all aspects of LARA’s adult education instruction and am routinely inspired by the persistance and hard work of our students in reaching their goals. I have my B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Rochester and an M.S.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Purdue University. A long-time resident of Greater Lafayette with my husband and daughter, I enjoy singing, writing, dancing, and cooking. I have also loved playing Mother Ginger for the last 11 years in Lafayette Ballet Company’s annual production of The Nutcracker.
