I love teaching because everyday is different, every child is unique, and I love the challenge of getting the students engaged in their own learning.  I love the "ah-ha" moments: seeing the lightbulbs come on for the kids!

I enjoy outdoor activities, going to concerts, reading, and spending time with friends and family.

Favorite Book:
