Who or what inspired you to become a teacher? When I was 14 I got a job as a summer camp counselor and I love it. Every summer I came back to the same camp and it was always a blast. I got to work with all different ages ranging from 5- 14 yr olds but work with the 5 yr olds were always my favorite age group. Working with children made me feel like I could actually excel at something and eventually I decided to go to school for Early Childhood Education.
My best day in the classroom was when….EVERY DAY IS THE BEST DAY!
If you could have one teacher superpower what would it be? To be as fast as the Flash! Having a room with challenging behaviors the ability to move quickly could really come in handy!
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? I enjoy swimming, hiking, going to the dog park and watching Netflix for hours.
What else would you like to share about yourself or profession? I love animals! The Cheyenne mountain zoo is my absolute favorite place on earth. I could spend all day feeding the giraffes! One day I will be queen of the Giraffes.
