I have spoken to students in the past about the many "hats" a person will wear in their lifetime and encourage them to find happiness in these opportunities rather than feeling stressed. My current hats include mom, wife, teacher, daughter, sister, friend, coffee drinker, avid reader and wannabe chef. I also love everything Star Wars and Doctor Who.
Most of all, I love teaching!! I look forward to each and every year and growing a rapport with all the students. I believe having fun in the classroom enlightens children to the joys of learning. In May of 2017, I joined the TEAMS program with other DPS teachers, in conjunction with ISU. We will be learning to create more hands-on learning through STEM/STEAM projects. Students are going to benefit from this because they will learn real-world applications to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.
