Special thanks: Thank you to my wonderful supervisor, Joan Staffiere, and my amazing mentor teacher, Carie Cuskelly, for sharing their knowledge and passion for teaching with me! I am also incredibly thankful for my family, my professors (shoutout to Dee and Miss P), and my classmates for supporting me in my time at UMaine.
