What brought you to teaching children:
I was a child who had lots of family life challenges growing up. I would like to make a difference by sharing my challenges, failures, and moments of success with students who are just like me.
Favorite book, as an adult, and why:
I don’t currently have a favorite but I really love Roald Dahl books ever since I was a kid.
Creative curriculum (something you do to personalize curriculum, annual project…): Students in the upper grades keep a fitness log and we use them to set goals throughout the year so that activity and sports are meaningful.
