Classroom Team:

Tell us about yourself!

I love working with kids. I love watching them grow into their greatness. I have been teaching for about 39-40 years I started in pre-k and from there moved to the phonics program and afterwards to Computers. I became an educator because I loved watching the expression on the face of the learner. As long as I can remember I’ve wanted to teach, which brings back memories of my childhood days, when I would pretend to teach my cousins. only to later help them with homework teach is who I am as well as Sunday School teacher and now a Ladies Bibles study teaching group.


What is your favorite part of the Future Goals™program? How do you see STEM in the game of hockey?

STEM using Future Hockey has the ability to grasp the understanding of the student in game mode. Building strategies for problem-solving, and critical thinking, and building each student’s math skills in game mode makes learning and engaging fun.
