1st Grade Teacher
Where do you call home?
How long have you been teaching?
Over 10 years
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. One of the most rewarding moments for me in the classroom is when I see a student have their "ah-ha" moment!
What is your favorite thing about USJ?
The community of people!
What is a fun fact about yourself?
Some of my USJ spirit wear that I wear on Friday's is actually from when I was in high school!
