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.
