Education and teaching has been my passion from a young age. I would trade my recess times in elementary school to go into classrooms and just watch teachers and volunteer as a student helper. I have enjoyed working in many positions in education, such as a teacher, educational director, mentor, and program evaluator to name a few. While each position was different, they were all about making sure that learning was fun and engaging for every single student. My favorite position was helping teachers teach and providing support in making the learning environment come alive. . Being able to go into the classrooms and share fun strategies with teachers such as lesson activities, making up learning songs, and connecting learning to real world experiences, was and is truly rewarding. Being an educator for both students and teachers is an amazing position to hold. However, the greatest treasure that I have found is the learning and growth that I receive from each student and teacher that I am able to work with.

Outside of teaching, I enjoy listening to and singing all genres of music. It is no wonder that my students have a song for every skill that they are taught. I also enjoy scrapbooking. Scrapbooking allows me to capture awesome moments in life and display them in a fun and bright way to look at for years to come. I enjoy spending time with my children and playing video and board games. During my vacation times, I like to travel and collect items that I can bring back and connect to teaching experiences that I can share with my students.
