This year marks my 16th year in education. I started my career teaching 5th grade and then served as an elementary school principal.

I have loved each part of my journey, but my heart is truly in the classroom. I love coming to school each day to help my students learn and grow!

My students are eager to please and hard-workers. Our school serves a large population of high-poverty students, so having reading materials readily available at school is particularly important.
