Why I am committed to Amphi
I am committed to Amphi as an educator. Their vision, mission and values are essential components to build a successful school district.

Defining Moment in my Education
My defining moment in education isn’t restricted to any one big moment. I’m fortunate to say that my defining moments in education happen every time that I connect to a student. Those connections can look different with each student. The connection can be through relationship, a revelation or progress. The hugs, high-fives, smiles, “aha” moments, and evidence of progress from students are all my defining moments in education.
Why I Teach at Walker
Lulu Walker is an amazing place to work and teach. There is a great sense of community amongst the staff, students and parents. Lulu Walker focuses on the positive things that happen on school campus. I am glad to be part of a staff that works hard, stays positive and genuinely cares for every one of our Walker Wolves. Lulu Walker Elementary is a school where I feel that I can make a difference in a child’s life and enjoy the place where I teach.
Hobbies and Interests
My hobbies include exercising and photography. Exercise is important for me to stay healthy and happy. I love to go bicycle riding with my sons, take gym classes and go for the occasional hike. Photography is so much fun to learn about. I love taking pictures for friends and my family. Photography is a way to capture special memories to treasure.
