Why did you decide to become a teacher? I have wanted to be a teacher since I was little.  My second grade teacher saw my potential and saw my strengths. She knew that I had a unique way of learning.  I want to provide that path for every child that I can.  Every child has potential and unique strengths and they all deserve their best possible learning path.

Why did you decide to become a teacher?

I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in kindergarten! I always enjoyed being a student and had some amazing teachers growing up in the Garfield Re2 school system that inspired me to pursue my dreams. I also love working with students and helping them to grow socially, emotionally, and academically! I am lucky to have a job I love going to every day!

What do you like most about teaching?

I love helping students grow and building strong relationships to meet their unique needs. This is my 16th year working for Garfield Re2, and every year I learn and grow to be a better teacher for my students. I enjoy that every child is different and that I can help them achieve their goals. 

What hobbies do you enjoy in your free time?

My husband and I have two beautiful toddlers, and I love spending time with my family. My hobbies these days normally include playing hide and seek, riding bikes, going to the park and pool, reading books to my children, playing with PlayDoh, etc., and I love every minute of it! My family and I also enjoy camping, hiking, and I love to dance.
