Kindergarten Teacher

Years Taught: Entering my eighth year teaching


St. Mary’s Central Catholic High School, Sandusky, Ohio

Why did you become a teacher?

“My second-grade teacher made a big impact on me, and I did my high school senior project shadowing her. I have always loved children and known that elementary education is where my passion is.”

What goals do you have for your students?

“As a kindergarten teacher, I am giving many children their first experience at school.  My goal is to create a safe and fun environment where students want to come to learn in a fun way. I want to instill a love for learning.”

What do you encourage parents do to strength skills at home?

“Family time is very important, so I encourage nightly reading.  I hope parents will read aloud to their child every night and share a love for books.  This activity makes a big impact.”

Name your favorite musician or band: “I love to listen to a variety of genres of music, but right now my family listens to a lot of Zac Brown Band.”

What is something your students might not know about you?

“In my years as a stay at home mom, I had an Etsy shop, Dream Big my Love, where I created and sold boutique-style baby goods such as blankets, burp clothes, bibs and teething rings. I love to sew.”
