Who or what inspired you to become a teacher? My mother by placing an importance on education. My father for instilling a work ethic in me to always work hard and improve my skills.
My best day in the classroom was when… When children are actively engaged, showing curiosity and imagination, and thinking outside the box.
If you could have one teacher superpower what would it be? Octo-Teacher with 8 arms so multiple children can have my attention at one time.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? Hiking
What else would you like to share about yourself or profession? I’m always learning something new from my co workers or children.
Favorite food: Fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy.
