What’s your favorite thing to do at school?

At school, I enjoy interacting with students and teachers. I enjoy the challenge of learning how they think and motivating them to take risks, work together and have fun.

Why did you become an educator?

I became an educator because my mom and several teachers believed in me more than I believed in myself. I hope to impact others, as I was influenced by these individuals.

Who is your favorite author?

My favorite authors are Nora Roberts, a.k.a. JD Robb and James Patterson. While I don’t have much time for pleasure reading these days, I love a good suspense novel.

If you were not an educator, what would you be?

I couldn’t imagine not being an educator. However, if I were not an educator, I would be a geologist or anthropologist. Our world and all its people and cultures amaze me!
