My road in life has been direct.
First, I was a peer counselor in high school helping teens talk about issues.
Then I added a minor in Education to my major and began writing lesson plans and student teaching.
Then I started working as a history teacher at a private school (stayed 6 years).
Then I started graduate school with an emphasis in technology implementation.
I started thinking about leaving the classroom, looked around, and ended up at Roadtrip!
Keep following my journey

Day to Day

The best part of my day is when I get to design an activity or lesson for a student. I love being in the shoes of both the student and the educator. I try to think of things that are non-traditional, get students out of their seats, but also that create an impacting experience. I also may work on writing a newsletter post for our social media, or a lesson plan for a teacher. I rely heavily on my writing abilities, but also my experience as an educator.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Start working with young kids now! Before I started college, I had some experience mentoring young people, and it motivated me to know I was staying true to my passion as I pursued my career. I also got a sense of what age group I enjoyed working with.
