More About Me
Throughout my time in the classroom I have seen huge potential in all my students. I have noticed a drive within children to push themselves further. Children’s curiosity has the potential to take them to new extremes. I believe students simply need to be introduced to the right people in order to ignite the flame within them. I feel as though I have the skills to do this.
Outside of school I adore playing with my dogs, cooking, watching sports (go hoos!), and listening to music.
