Classroom Team:

Why did you decide to become a teacher?

I wanted to impact students and inspire them to become future scientists, engineers, or anything else that they set their minds and hard work to do!

What has been your most memorable moment as a teacher?

Whenever the lightbulb turns on and they “get it”. It is such a fulfilling experience.

What is your favorite part of Future Goals and how are you using it in your classroom? 

My students loved “Prepare the Surface”. I love that the students see how science and math applies in real life. How they can see it in something like they love, sports! We are using it in class to elaborate what they are learning about how particles move in different phases of matter.

What was your student’s reaction to the program?

They really enjoyed it. The graphics are great.

Who is your favorite player?

Noel Acciari. He is a great player and he is my favorite number.
