Your “Why” in Education

I believe that schools should be a place where all students are able to feel loved, supported, and challenged. I am fueled by the problem solving that comes with figuring out how to create this type of environment so that all students are truly able to THRIVE.

Your “Why” in Education

I believe learning to be a joyous challenge.  I love that challenge right before the light bulbs turn on and that knowledge is mine forever.  I chose education to help bring that feeling to the young people of my community.  I know how much potential and wonder awaits them if they too can find the joy in learning.
