Question 1: Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Spring Grove, PA and Manhattan, KS.
Question 2: What is the best part about being a teacher/educator?
The best part about working in education is supporting teachers and students in setting and reaching high goals.  I also appreciate that I am able to make a positive impact for our students and staff by individualizing supports for each of them.  It is awesome to celebrate all achievements, academic or not.  When a teacher or student masters something for the first time, it makes my heart so full.
Question 3: When you’re not teaching, what do you like to do?
I love to spend as much time as I can with my family and friends.  My daughter, husband, and I enjoy being in the mountains and continuing our trips to visit every Major League Ballpark.  I also enjoy painting, traveling, and planning events and parties for loved ones.  When I’m not at DCIS at Ford, I am also continuing to learn, myself, through a leadership program at the University of Denver.
