• Hello!  As a Southwest alum, I am proud to say that I am the new 7th grade science teacher this year! Prior to working in room 704 as a science teacher, I spent a year as a long-term substitute in a math classroom as well as a special education classroom. After graduating with my degree and finishing my student teaching semester in 2016, I spent time as a paraeducator at Southwest before leaving for a year to travel around the world with a program called the World Race. When I came home, I was eager to get back in the classroom to do what I love. And eventually, I landed back where my passion really started... at Southwest Middle School.
