I love teaching Individuals & Societies here at CFI 2! I graduated with a B.A. (2010) and M.A. (2012) in History from East Stroudsburg University, an M.A. in Chinese Linguistics from Shenyang Normal University, and an M.Ed. in Education-Social Studies from Marian University (2020).  Prior to teaching to middle school, I taught Chinese Mandarin, ESL, and History at the college level for 8 years.  I began teaching at CFI 2 in 2018. In the classroom I am widely known to be a huge nerd with a penchant for historical parody songs and hands-on historical simulations.  Outside of the classroom I am a proud Trekkie, a board gamer, a world traveler, and a lover of reading! I look forward to many great and nerd-tastic years at CFI!
