My favorite thing about being an educator is the relationships that I build with my students, families, and fellow teachers.

If the school day suddenly got cancelled, how would you spend the day?
If school were suddenly cancelled, I would take my time waking up and go to the gym! Then, I’d find a coffee shop to enjoy an iced coffee and read/write.

Hmmm, I think I would choose crackers.

If you weren’t a teacher, what do you think your job would be?
I know I’d be helping people no matter what. In high school, I was a part of the medical magnet program so I probably would have pursued a career in that field!

I have bungee jumped twice in Monteverde, Costa Rica.

What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud? My friend was retelling an old story of ours that brought me back & cracked me up!
