 Grade/Focus: Preschool 3

How long have you been at Cleveland Elementary? 22 years!

What do you love most about teaching? I love being a part of their first academic experiences and watch the children grow and learn so much throughout the year.

I love all the “aha” moments when a child’s eyes light up because they understand something new or try something new for the first time.

Each day is different and we have fun while learning!

What is your favorite thing about Cleveland Elementary?  I love the families and the sense of community. It’s nice watching all the children and families grow throughout the years.

If you weren’t a teacher, what other profession would you enjoy?  I would love to work at a shelter helping homeless pets find their forever homes.

Do you have any pets?  Yes, I have a dog named Parker. He is 7 years old and an important part of our family! We also have a beta fish named Superhero Macaroni (the kids named him) he is our class pet!

What is your most favorite place you have visited? Why?  My favorite place I visited was Ecuador! I got to meet all my extended family.

If you could have 1 superpower, what would it be?  I would love to teleport from place to place!

How many laps did you run in the last Red Bird Hustle? How many do you think you will run in the next one? I think I ran 14 laps. Next year I will probably run about the same. I always run with a “little” partner and make sure I cheer our class on.
