I like to tell people that teaching is my hobby. It's genuinely something that I do for the love of it. Why? I just enjoy hanging out with kids all day! Delivering the instruction is just one aspect of teaching, the other part is connecting with your students. That personal connection and building a classroom community is what I truly enjoy about teaching.
I have been teaching for over 10 years, and what I always look forward to is making connections with my students. Every year I lean so much about teaching the whole child as well as about myself. I wonder what things I will learn this year?
Mostly I love to spend time with my family! We are always off on some fun adventure. But if I have the rare moment of “me” time, I like to do anything outside! Run, mountain bike, hike, raft, garden, swim, you name it! Most of these things I do end up enjoying with my two beautiful children!
