Classroom Team:

Why did you decide to become a teacher?

I have always loved working with kids and I wanted to help make a difference in their lives.

What has been your most memorable moment as a teacher?

The laughter shared together and the “light bulb” moments are my favorite part of teaching.

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

My favorite part of the Future Goals program is the real world connection to math and science. We have been using the Future Goals program during Distance Learning as a fun way to enhance our STEM program.

What was your student’s reaction to the program?

They were excited to get started with the program and love the connection of math and science to hockey.

Who is your favorite hockey player?

Brent Burns – a defenseman that can do it all!
