What inspired you to become a teacher?-After volunteering at a camp for children with special needs I knew I had a passion to work with children.  It wasn't until I was working for the got milk? campaign that I was reminded how much their smiling milk mustache faces and inquisitive minds made me feel eager to spend more time with them inside of a classroom. 

What do you enjoy most about teaching? I love when students have that 'ah-ha' moment of understanding a specific topic or idea. 

Hobbies include: 

-Playing with my children Emma and Daniel

-Hanging out with my family and friends

-Dancing, knitting and running
