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!
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.
