Favorite Educational Quote and Why
Children are apt to live up to what you believe in them. - Lady Bird Johnson. This quote is important to me because you have to build up student’s confidence. They may have failed or struggled in the past and feel like there is limited hope. I believe in my students and know they can do wonderful things. I want them to believe in theirselves as well.
Why I Became An Educator
I love working with children and seeing them grow academically and socially as they enter their teen years. I strive to show them what amazing things they can accomplish and what amazing things they are capable of in their future.
Favorite Place in Caldwell
My favorite places to visit in Caldwell County are Blue Moose (one can never have too much coffee), the library (one can never have too many books to read), and Wilson’s Creek (because I love the water)
Swimming, reading, watching my kids play sports, and family time.
