Classroom Team:

Tell us about yourself!

I am a 4th grade teacher and teach all subjects at Woodrow Wilson Elementary. I have been teaching for 12 years in the district I graduated from. I became a teacher because I like working with kids and wanted to make a difference. Throughout my time at this district as a parent and a teacher I have ran the PTA, organized and ran book fairs. For the past few years I have been the Safety Patrol Advisor and Safe Routes Coordinator.

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

My favorite part of the program is how much the students enjoy it. They are excited to be able to learn while having fun, especially my sports student fans. I think it is great to show them how sports and STEM – My students really love how measurement is incorporated with hockey and they enjoy that the program is challenging while fun.
