What brought you to teaching children:
My belief in the importance of an education. Once you get an education, it can never be taken away.
Favorite book, as an adult, and why:
One of my favorite books is The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon because it takes you to another place and time.
Creative curriculum (something you do to personalize curriculum, annual project…):
I always try to make personal connections to students to make learning meaningful.
