Social Studies.

 What grade (s) do you teach

8th and 9th grade.

How long have you been teaching at SASD? 

This is my 23rd year.

What do you find most surprising about your job? 

That no matter how many experiences you have had as a teacher, every year brings something new.

If you could teach another subject, what would it be and why?

Math. I went to Kutztown University to be a math teacher but earned a D in Calculus. I reflected on my situation and soon realized I needed a different path.

What is your favorite sports team? Why are they your favorite?

The University of Nebraska Sports. I was born in Nebraska.

How and when did you know that teaching was what you wanted to do?

When I was really young, I liked the way it felt when I showed a person how to do something. Many people in my family are in the education field, so I guess it is in my blood.
