Why I Chose Education as my Career of Choice:
As a young child, I was inspired by my kindergarten teacher. Unlike many, I have known that I wanted to teach since I was five years old. I love building relationships with young children, their families and staff. I especially love the "ah ha" moments, when a child figures something out.
In my spare time, I enjoy time with my family and supporting my daughter's interests, like band and forensics. We enjoy travelling to new destinations.
