Who or what inspired you to become a teacher? I have always had a connection and passion for teaching. I grew up around a lot of younger children and helped raise my younger sisters.
My best day in the classroom was when… We ran a summer carnival! The older children loved running the “rides” and the excitement from the younger children was priceless.
If you could have one teacher superpower what would it be? Unlimited energy.

What else would you like to share about yourself or profession? One of my favorite aspects of teaching is getting lost in a good book with a child.
