Dr. Hohlt was my favorite teacher – he didn’t simplify the content so we were forced to challenge our own thinking.
Growing up, I saw firsthand the impact that my mom had on the lives of students with special needs, so I think seeing her and getting to know her students sparked my passion for education. After college, I began my career in Special Education and fell in love with my students.
After having taught in the public school system, I wanted to use my skills and background to help bring about systemic changes in education. I was excited to join a team that has a positive, focused energy and brings a unique and solution-oriented perspective to the conversation about education.
I believe that at the heart of success in education is strong relationships between students, teachers, and staff. Deans for Impact’s focus on transforming the teaching profession through data-informed decisions and collaboration with the teacher preparation community is a powerful mission that highlights the importance of these relationships.
