What inspired you to teach?
As a community organizer, I found myself continually trying to alleviate community problems that existed because people didn't have access to an educational system that worked for them. I became convinced (and still am) that for our communities to thrive our educational system has to thrive too! I stepped into the classroom seven years ago to start that change.
Describe a favorite teaching memory
My first year teaching a student came into my class at the end of the day and left a paper bag on my desk for me before running out of the door. When the bag moved I cautiously investigated the contents and found a duckling! The duckling spent the first night in my bathroom and then had an amazing week encouraging my students in the classroom! Nothing like a ball of fluff to shake up the classroom!
Something I can’t live without is…..
Coffee! But my laptop is a close second, all of my brilliant ideas are stored there.
When I'm not teaching I am …...
In the woods hiking!
