We are who we meet. We are who we teach. And we are who teach us. All of these happen simultaneously and help us grow into kind, responsible and deep-thinking individuals. It is incredibly satisfying to be a part of that process.

"I believe a teacher can meet the needs of students so that each is challenged and successful. My classroom is a place where students are encouraged to expand their thinking through experiential learning, and a place where cooperation and mutual respect are highly valued. I want for my students what I want for my own children: for them to be challenged and loved, prepared for what comes next and excited about learning. "

I feel fortunate to work at a
school that recognizes how children learn differently
and allows a variety of materials and equipment to
support learning and success in the classroom.
Here, each child can reach his or her potential.

"I look at each student as a puzzle, and it is my role to put the pieces — the skills — together. The most rewarding moments are when those pieces finally fit, and a child can say with confidence, 'I am a reader," or "I am a mathematician.'"
