What was your inspiration to teach or what keeps you in the educational field?

I had great relationships with my teachers growing up and loved the classroom as a kid. I knew I wanted to have an impact on the world with whatever career I chose, so teaching felt like a great fit. I think now more than ever, we need dedicated teachers who strive to build positive relationships with kids in order to help them grow into successful adults. I believe school is not just about learning the content in each class, but about learning how to be a good citizen, problem solver, coworker, and friend.

Hobbies, Interests, and Fun Facts: <p>My hobbies include knitting, reading, and running. I’m also passionate about self-care and skincare! A fun fact about me is that I studied abroad in Scotland during college, and my husband is a golf instructor, so we have visited Scotland on numerous occasions for golf vacations! It’s one of our favorite places to travel.</p>
