QUESTION: What is one sentence that sums up what you believe is the key to teaching?
ANSWER: I come to school each day with high expectations of my students and a sense of humor.
QUESTION: When you’re not teaching, you most likely can be found doing what?
ANSWER: I will be outside for sure, enjoying time with my family! I will find any excuse to get out of the house and take advantage of the many outdoor activities that our region has to offer. When at home, my husband and I love working in the garden and playing chess!
