Faith in Action
My faith is very important to me and I hope to incorporate faith with excellence in our classroom.
Favorite Teaching Moment
One of my favorite teaching moments has to be when I learned that the pond near my old school had tadpoles and my class was learning the life cycle in science. With my students, we researched how to care for the tadpoles and we put a couple in a container for a few weeks to watch them transform into little frogs. Science truly came alive during those few weeks!
Favorite Activity Outside of School
My daughter Michelle is the light of my life and some of my favorite moments outside of the classroom include discovering new places with her. In addition, I really enjoy cooking, reading, music, and going to the beach.
