DJ began teaching ELA at Fusion Academy in Denver, Colorado last year before moving to Knoxville, Tennessee with her fiancé in summer of 2022. She hopes to bring the same level of excitement to her online students that she was able to bring in person! DJ graduated from Metropolitan State University, majoring in English with a concentration on composition and minored in Linguistic/Cultural Anthropology, graduating at the top of her class with honors. It was through working with students consistently at MSU Denver’s Writing Center and working as a Teacher’s Assistant that she discovered her passion for education.
Outside of the classroom, DJ enjoys writing poetry, working out, and spending time with loved ones. A little-known fact about her is that she played competitive soccer all of her life, even playing with some current members on the US Women’s National Team!
