Where do you call home?
How long have you been teaching?

What is your favorite part about your job?
I love that I have the opportunity to serve children. All children are unique so I love getting to know them and seeing what each child's special gift is. I want each one of them to know that I love them; I feel that building relationships with them is the key to success, both in education and in their personal life.

The community of people!
What is a fun fact about yourself?
