By day I teach middle schoolers Global Studies, by night I learn the ways of the world at Saginaw Valley State University. I am currently in the thick of my Master’s program in literacy. Among other things I am passionate about are laughing, playing volleyball with birthday balloons and my ever growing magnet collection. I am truly a kid at heart and any opportunity I have to learn and grow from them I seize and cherish it. I think if we are tasked to see the world for what it is; this incredible, huge, chaotic, beautiful disaster. I hope that I am making my mark on it one day at a time.
