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.
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 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.
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.
