What motivated you to become a teacher?

I was blessed with having great elementary teachers.  They were my first inspirations and role models that planted the seed to what I would later nurture into a career.  I love children and enjoy giving back to the community, so becoming a teacher fell right in line with these passions.

Why did you choose to teach at Trinity?

At only three years old, Trinity was the first school I experienced, and I remained a student at TEDS for the next few years.  I remembered Trinity to be such a close-knit community with a nurturing atmosphere, and I was eager to be a part of the family again.

What do you want your students to gain from you and your classroom?

I want my students to gain academic ownership, the responsibility of their knowledge and wonder.  I hope they will extend the respect and kindness we share for one another in our classroom.
