Why did you decide to become a teacher? I decided I wanted to become a teacher in third grade when I had a really loving and influential teacher myself. Like my third grade teacher, I strive to help my students feel safe, loved, encouraged, and enthusiastic about learning new things.
What do you like most about teaching? I love witnessing my students have "aha moments."  I love showing my students that learning is fun and exciting.  I also love to have those heart to heart conversations about how mistakes are a part of the learning process, that everyone has different talents to help make the world a better place, and that your heart can lead you to know what is right or wrong if you learn how to listen to it. I love building a family community in my classroom, where learning is sometimes messy, where we all help each other using our specific strengths, and where we believe in second.
What hobbies do you enjoy in your free time? I love spending time with my family, hiking, kayaking, swimming, and reading in my spare time.
