I became a teacher because it is, I believe, the one profession where I can make a real contribution to the members of my community every single day. I care deeply that all my students learn skills that help them grow into great adults!
My favorite thing about being a teacher is seeing light bulbs come on in kids’ heads! Although every day is a chance to learn something new, there’s also consistency. Every day I get to show kids how to build upon where we were yesterday.
When I’m not at school, you’ll find me at home, in the woods or the garden, with my husband and family and dogs and chickens, enjoying the outdoors.
If I could have a superpower, it would be to fly like Superman. I would need to get a cape, though. Flying always looks way cooler when you have a cape.
