What brought you to teaching children: I have always had a passion for teaching. When I was in high school I fell in love with education through a local internship at an elementary school by my high school. From that year on I have set forth to teach and pursue my passion of helping every child learn.

Favorite book, as an adult, and why: How to Walk Away by Kathern Center has been one of my favorite books.

Creative curriculum (something you do to personalize curriculum, annual project…): I believe every child had the ability to learn no matter what so I make sure all classroom curriculum is accessible to every child in my classroom through differentiation, modification, and scaffolding.
