When did you realize you wanted to be a teacher?: I realized I wanted to be a teacher when I turned my playhouse in our backyard into a schoolhouse and lined up all of my dolls to teach them.
Hobbies: Running, gardening, traveling
Favorite movie: Raising Arizona
What advice would you give a person considering the teaching profession?: I would tell someone to keep in mind the big picture when it comes to children (and adults). You don't know what is going on in their lives. I would also advise everyone to have a stress release, a vise, like exercise or yoga.
I am a #TeacherHero because: I care!
