What has been your greatest learning experience? (in or out of school)
Every school year becomes my greatest learning experience. Even after 14 years of teaching, I still learn new things from my students and their families every day; new things I cherish and use to help me in years to follow.

Who do you admire and why?
I admire single mothers and fathers who raise children on their own filling both roles, giving selfless hours day in and day out to make their children the best people they can be.

What do you love about your current WSD position and the WSD community?
I love working here because I can see the students come into the school as young children, follow and watch them grow through their schooling, and see them graduate high school as proud young adults.
