Gifted 5th Grade Teacher

My Why Story

Every child deserves a champion and someone that will never give up on them.

I have known since the first grade that I have wanted to be a teacher and make a difference in the lives of others. I am thankful for my first and third grade teachers for inspiring me to want to become a teacher through their kindness and compassion towards me. They dedicated time to get to know me as an individual, and I strive to do the same for my students. Every child is unique in their own way, and my goal is to develop lifelong learners who make this world a better place!
