I Love GA because…
"It has given me so many opportunities to enrich my life and the lives of others. Never in my craziest dreams would I think I could positively impact someone's life in the ways I can today. Each day, I am reminded that working at GA gives me that opportunity."
When you visit my classroom/office/work space, you will see…
"After I get done blabbing to my students, I would hope that a visitor would see student ownership and engagement. My goal each day is to give my students opportunity to work collaboratively or independently, balancing the freedom they deserve with the support they need."
My hobbies and interests include…
"My favorite thing to do is interact with people, no matter the age. Anytime I can learn something new from someone, whether it is a new song or interesting fact,I am excited. I am a huge fan of professional basketball, reading, and animation!"
Engaging with students is important because…
"The connections we make with each other is much more important than the content we teach. I try, to be honest, and real with my students, allowing them to see my strengths and my weaknesses. By listening to their problems, regardless of the size, I find that students feel appreciated and recognized."
The book that has meant the most to me:
"As an English teacher, this is an impossible question! JK Rowling's Harry Potter series was the most impactful literature of my youth. It was the first book series that allowed me to fully immerse myself in the characters, setting, and mythology. Because of Harry, my love of reading was reignited, and it hasn't lessened since!"
