Degree(s) earned: Bachelors degree in Behavioral Science

Number of years teaching: 5

Family: Husband Robbie, Sons Stetson and Beau

Why did you choose teaching? I chose teaching as a career because I love to see a student's eyes light up when they understand or learn something new. They have this look of pride and accomplishment and that is something that they may not get to experience much in life and knowing that I was able to help them feel that way is amazing.

What is your favorite part of being a teacher? My favorite part of being a teacher is the number of relationships I get to build throughout the years and all the amazing people I get to meet; families, students, coworkers, and others in the community.

What do you like to do in your free time? I love spending time with my family in the outdoors going camping, boating, baseball games, and fishing!
