Why were you inspired to teach?
I had many fantastic teachers growing up who inspired me to teach. I knew in the 2nd grade I wanted to be a teacher. I love working with children and helping them to see their potential.
What is your favorite part of the school day?
My favorite part of the school day is my math block. I enjoy working with the students in a small group setting, getting
to play math games and helping them to realize that math is fun and everyone can be great at it!
Do you have a favorite assignment/ project that you typically assign your students?
One of my favorite activities is our glow-in- the dark math stations. The students get to work with glow sticks, highlighters and flashlights to solve fun math problems.
How do you wind down from a long day of teaching?
I like to come home and spend time with my two kids. Usually, we like to go for walks and play outside.
What do you like to do outside of the classroom?
Everything pretty much revolves around my 1-year-old daughter Olivia and my 3-year- old son Asa! We like to go to the park, play outside, read books and build things.
Share a funny teaching moment/day.
Some of my funniest memories come from my time at Camp Crystal. When we take the students on our overnight field trip,
the 5th grade team choreographs a dance routine to show the kids. It is always really hilarious!
If you were a superhero, who would you be?
I think I would be Spider-Man because I like to help others.

“Wonder” by R.J. Palacio
