How did your experiences at the Parma City School District help you to achieve success in your career?
The teachers and experiences I had during my time at PCSD gave me the confidence to further my education at a 4-year university.
What is your favorite childhood memory growing up?
My favorite childhood memory is having two older sisters. We have always been extremely close and I’ve looked up to them my entire life.
Who was your favorite teacher and how did they inspire you?
I have so many, but the two that stick out to me the most are Paula Stadalsky and Ron Ealy, both of which were my fifth-grade teachers at John Muir Elementary. Because of them, I fell in love with both ELA and Social Studies. They are one of the reasons why I am now a middle school ELA/Social Studies teacher. I owe it to you guys, so thank you! It was an honor to be your student, and Paula, it was an honor to be your student teacher!
Looking back at your school years, what is one thing that has stayed with you throughout the years?
The number of amazing teachers I’ve had! This district is filled with so many educators that are very passionate about their jobs and the areas they teach. Learning from a teacher who is passionate is something that has stayed with me throughout the years, and that is the kind of educator I strive to be for my students.
What does the PCSD mean to you?
PCSD means everything to me. It means becoming the most successful version of yourself alongside the best teachers, staff, and peers in the land!
What is one thing you want people to know about you?
One thing I want people to know about me is that I was a cheerleader for 17 years. I am also a cheerleading coach at Berea Midpark Middle School for 7th and 8th-grade football and basketball.
Why are you Parma Proud?
I am Parma Proud because this is my home! It is an honor to have gone through this district and now work here.
