 What motivated you to become a teacher?
My passion has always been to teach young children.  It is such a wonderful experience to watch my kids grow and learn throughout the year.  Being an effective teacher for a child’s
first educational experience can be challenging, but I also find it to be the greatest and most rewarding experience and certainly worth the effort.

Why did you choose to teach at Trinity?
Trinity is a place where children and teachers feel safe, comfortable and respected in a loving Christian environment. The educational standards and expectations for the teachers are high and when fulfilled quite rewarding.  Trinity has a familial setting that is welcoming to everyone that is involved with the school. It is a great place to be!

What do you want your students to gain from you and your classroom?
I want my students to gain a love of school, a desire to learn more and more, and a strong sense of self.
