What brought you to teaching children:
To help, love and care for them.
Favorite book, as an adult, and why: My favorite book is What Do You Do With an Idea? I love this book because it is an inspiration to remember that all great things start with an idea. Overcoming obstacles and insecurities can take you far. The book reminds you to recognize potential and reach goals.
Creative curriculum (something you do to personalize curriculum, annual project…): I love to let students have power in their own learning. Giving students choice to demonstrate their knowledge and mastery is one of my favorite things to do.
