I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. Growing up both of my parents were elementary school principals. I would visit them at work often so that I could be a 'helper' in all of the different classrooms. I looked forward to these times because I loved helping the children learn. This passion for working with children grew with me over the years. I believe all children are capable of becoming world changers. I believe that our future depends on our youth's ability to show up in the world as compassionate, confident, kind humans, who are ready to make informed intelligent decisions throughout their lives. As a teacher, I believe it is my responsibility to prepare them for this! Finally, I love the curiosity that children have. Each child is unique and capable of learning and growing. My goal is to inspire my students and to give them the tools they need to lead with confidence and courage to do and be what ever they dream of!
