Why did you become a teacher? “I became a teacher because I wanted to pass on the inspiration of learning to children that I received from teachers like Mrs. Melwid, my fourth-grade teacher. It’s true, you may not remember everything they taught you, but you always remember how they made you feel. Mrs. Melwid inspired me to be the best me I can be.”

What goals do you have for your students? “My goal is for my students to become leaders and lovers of learning.”

What do you encourage parents to do at home to help their children strengthen particular skills? “I encourage parents to understand their child strengths to help reinforce skills that need more practice.”

Favorite movie: “There are so many that are my favorites. It’s hard to choose, but a movie I could watch over and over again is ‘The Holiday.’”

Favorite musician or band: Johnny Cash.

What’s something your students might not know about you? “I have never seen the original ‘Star Wars’ all the way through.”
