Media Para Specialist
Hopkins High School 
2014 - 2019

While working at the Hopkins High School Media Center, I not only learned how to skillfully use several kinds of media programs, but I also had fulfilling interpersonal relationships with incredibly bright, talented, & thoughtful students.
I witnessed and grew to appreciate all the hard work and sincere dedication all of the high school staff committed to in order to make our students succeed.  


Substitute Teacher
Hopkins School District
2011 - 2013
Because I had a substitute teaching license that allowed me to teach grades K-12, I was able to confidently lead classes and successfully teach students from lesson plans provided by their teacher. It allowed me to get well acquainted with our Hopkins students. After substitute teaching, I appreciated all the hours of hard work Hopkins public schools teachers put in when they created lesson plans to actively engage students in order for them to excel.

I wrote for the entertainment and fashion section. I had fun meeting and writing about people from the modeling and television industry.
