Why did you become a teacher?

I knew I enjoyed being with kids and teaching. During the summer, I taught swimming and worked at a day camp as a lifeguard.

Seeing light bulbs come on when they don’t get it, especially with students who have a harder time. Makes me feel like I made a difference. I enjoy them coming back and keeping me updated on their lives and school.

Something in retail probably.

Water, pool, tan

Grease, Dirty Dancing

Anything by Nicholas Sparks

What are you summer plans?

Water, pool, tan. I also have a trip to the beach planned.
