What do you like about your job?  I enjoy coming each day to see the excitement from kids. Kids teach me things that I may have not thought about, and in return, I want to teach them to have a love for learning. I love that I get to be a good role model of how you should treat each other and that learning can be exciting and possible for all. Deep down, I love that I get to find time each day to read a great book with great kids, and see the excitement of the student that finally understands after they have worked so hard.
What is your favorite read aloud book? Wayside School or Matilda
What do you do for fun? For fun, I enjoy hiking, spending time with my family, or cooking.
What is your favorite classroom saying? You hear and you forget. You see and you remember. You do and you understand.
What are your “pet peeves?” Excuses
What are your favorites? My favorite things include anything purple- especially purple pens, baked goods, technology, and Carmel/Cheese popcorn
