What inspired you to go into education? 

Since I can remember, I've wanted to be a teacher. I would say, however, that my high school chemistry teacher was the person who really influenced and pushed me to reach my full potential. It was being in his class with the way he brought excitement in learning that convinced me to become a science teacher.

What are you most looking forward to this school year?

I am looking forward to meeting our students and working with this amazing team of teachers and staff. Everyone has been so helpful and welcoming, I feel so fortunate to be a member of this team and community.
