Why I enjoy teaching: 

I love to teach because I love to learn and to bring out the love of learning in others.  The art of teaching is a skill that can constantly be refined and re-defined.  Spending my days with kids keeps me smiling, reminds me of what matters most in life and constantly challenges me to always be refining my skills.

What I love about PSD Options: 

I love that PSD has a program like Options for the variety of learners in our school district.  Options allows students to experience the school setting while still enjoying the home-school environment.  This enrichment program allows students to delve deeper into subject matter while learning to be a part of a classroom community.

My favorite book(s): 

My favorite adult book is The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay and my favorite children's book is Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes.

When I am outside of the classroom: 

You can usually find me biking, running, hiking, swimming or baking when I am not in the classroom.  I also love to read and knit.
