Why did you become a teacher? Ever since I was in first grade, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. I had my own ‘classroom’ in my garage and I spent my allowance on school supplies! I had such wonderful teachers growing up, and I knew that teaching was the career for me.

What goals do you have for your students? I want my students to believe in themselves and have confidence. One of the best parts of my job is helping to instill confidence in my students.

What do you encourage parents to do at home to help their children strengthen particular skills? I want parents to continue to review skills their child has learned in class. For example, when playing outside, have their child look for lines of symmetry, congruent shapes, even or odd numbers. Learning is not limited to the classroom; so much learning takes place at home.

What is your favorite movie? “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”

Who is your favorite musician or band? I enjoy a variety of music, and music is even better when it is live!

What’s something your students might not know about you? I broke the Noblesville High School bowling record with a score of 176 when I was a sophomore.
