Why did you decide to become a teacher?
I love working with students and feeling like I can and have made a difference in their lives.
What has been your most memorable moment as a teacher?
This year I had a student write an ELA essay for Thanksgiving, explaining how what they were most thankful for was me being her teacher and making a tough school year the best one ever.
What is your favorite part of Future Goals and how are you using it in your classroom?
I like how it connects to real life concepts and is an entertaining and fun way of teaching math and science concepts.
What was your student’s reaction to the program?
Especially the boys, they really were excited to be doing something different and that seemed fun.
Who is your favorite hockey player?
Sam Reinhart for the Buffalo Sabres. My son and I have always followed Sam, and he has been such a great guy to my son. We always make signs just for him and he has thrown my son a puck every single game:)
