I have been with SASD for about 5 years.

Everyone has their own set of challenges that they are working to overcome.

What do you find most surprising about your job?

My students surprise me with their determination, and creativity, and how they make me smile and laugh every day.

What is your favorite part about teaching?

My favorite part about teaching is that over the years each and every one of my students has
taught me something new.

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

I would like to teach math, all day every day! There is a clear answer to every problem and it
also provides many ways to integrate art and other fun activities into daily learning goals.

I find that time is the biggest challenge, there just isn’t enough to do everything that I would like to each day.
