What is your favorite part about teaching?

My favorite part of teaching is that every day is different. Teaching is never boring. My students also bring me joy. I love knowing that I am helping them learn and grow.

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

My favorite sports team is the Pittsburgh Penguins.  I love watching ice hockey.  It is quick and fast-paced, just like teaching.  It is never boring. Let’s Go Pens!

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

I was fortunate to have amazing teachers throughout my years in school. Early on I knew that I wanted to be a teacher, just like my wonderful elementary teachers. Throughout high school, I was sure that was what I wanted to do.

Why did you choose the subject that you teach?

I always knew I wanted to work with young students in elementary school. As a high school and college student, I worked and volunteered at many field hockey camps working with young players. During that time, I was sure elementary was the level I wanted to teach.
