What brought you to teaching children?

I came to teaching because of my love for students. I believe that the students in my class will one day change the world for the better. I want my students to be confident in themselves and be incredible problem solvers.

Favorite book, as an adult, and why:

As a child my favorite book was Rainbow fish. As an adult I continue to enjoy children’s literature and young adult books, currently I am rereading the Harry Potter series!

Creative curriculum:

I believe in field trips and exposing my students to the many opportunities Phoenix has downtown. It is about my students learning about their community and their place in it.
