Who or what inspired you to become a teacher? I decided to become a teacher when I was working on a Psychology degree. I realized two years in that I had already been working with children for years and that I absolutely loved it.
My best day in the classroom was when…. I had been working with a little girl for months about how to tell her friends she didn’t like something, and then she did it all by herself without needing to come to me first.
If you could have one teacher superpower what would it be? To get students to nap!

What else would you like to share about yourself or profession? I love all of my kids!
What is your favorite food? Breakfast Burritos
