What do you like most about your job? 

There cannot be anything like teaching children. When a child has that breakthrough moment of recognizing a word, reading the first book, or understanding a math concept, nothing can match the thrill of that look of success. I love every moment in the classroom with these little wonders as they learn and grow.

Why did you become a teacher? 

Ever since I was a little girl playing teacher, I knew I belonged in the classroom. It has always been the right fit for me and I have not regretted one moment.

What do you like best about your current school (projects, programs or activities that your school is a part of):

Coopertown is a family full of staff who put children first. Everyone works together for the good of the children and we are definitely a child-centered school!
