I graduated in 2009 from Minot State University with a B.S. in English Education. I found a position teaching high school senior and sophomore language arts in North Dakota right out of college. I kept this position for 6 years before my family relocated to Colorado. During my time teaching in North Dakota, I advised yearbook for three years and taught summer school to freshman and sophomores. I also returned to college to obtain my Master's in Education with an English Concentration.
