My Why-

I love teaching and if you asked me why I could give you a thousand reasons, but the biggest reason is when my students recognize their own potential and have their "AHA!" moments in class. Student success and growth is something I like to cultivate in my classroom along with respect for themselves and others. Technology is a great way for them to learn personal responsibility online and in real life. This is why having the opportunity to teach computer lab in a growing digital age is so exciting to me. I like to have fun in my classroom and my students will always keep me on my toes with their new trends. I hope to be a positive influence and make a difference in young lives as well as having a part in creating a better society!

"We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in your hands to make a difference." -Nelson Mandela

My Background-

I have my bachelors of science in Biology and have always been drawn to science since I can remember. 

My Interests-

I am an avid gardener and spend a lot of my time outside (still not a fan of bees or bugs that bother me while gardening though), I am also as some family and friends would call me a "crazy chicken lady". What can I say I love animals? I spend time with my family and friends and I enjoy reading or listening to books on tape.
