Why I love to teach

There are so many reasons... I desire to instill the love of learning within my students. I enjoy sharing my passion for reading and writing and allowing my students to find theirs. Watching my students turn into critical thinkers is the highlight of every day for me. Mostly, I love giving my students a voice. They are amazing people with so much to teach all of us about the world! Middle school students ROCK!

If I wasn't a teacher I would be...

I do not know what I would do if I wasn't a teacher. I have been teaching for all of my adult life, so I don't know what else I would do. I believe teaching is what I am meant to do with my life.

Favorite pastimes

Spending time with my husband, children and dogs; reading; hiking; binging shows/movies on Netflix; going to the beach (any beach - I just love the beach!)
