What inspired you to teach?
I love English and I have had many English teachers over the years who inspired me. I became an English teacher so I could continue doing what I love - reading and writing - and so I could share that passion with others.
Describe a favorite teaching memory
I love it when a student finds a book or an article that inspires them, something that they can't wait to talk about with others. I will never forget when I overheard a student telling another student they had never in their high school life finished a book, but they were 20 pages away from finishing the one they were reading. It is always an amazing thing to see students surprise themselves with what they are capable of doing!
Something I can’t live without is…..
When I'm not teaching I am …...
Reading, writing, and spending time with my family.
