What do you like most about your job?
Working with the students keeps me young. Although, my mother tells me I am a child at heart.
Why did you become a teacher?
I found I was able to explain things to fellow classmates in high school. There was a teacher I had as a senior who allowed me to run tutor groups so I found my niche early. Another teacher in high school got me involved in the logic of the master schedule, which I assist with at Haverford Middle School.
What do you like best about your current school (projects, programs or activities that your school is a part of):
In addition to being with the students, I love the comraderie and bond I have with my colleagues. We go through the same things and can share, vent, etc., knowing it will be received in a constructive yet warm atmosphere.
