When you were a child, did people ask you what you wanted to be when you grow up? Well ever since I can remember I have always wanted to be a teacher and am honored to be part of a profession I love so dearly. I enjoy working with students, teachers, parents and the broader community. I have taught 1st grade, 4th grade, K-2 technology, and now am an instructional resource teacher (IRT.) I spent four years teaching and living overseas. It forever changed my life and how I view education. I enjoy traveling, reading, playing and watching sports, and spending time with family and friends.
