Defining Moment in my Education
I knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was very little. I always played school at home and as I got older my greatest heroes were my teachers. I had amazing teachers as I grew up who inspired me more and more through out my education. The best teacher of all was my mother who was a teacher for many years.
Core Educational Belief
I belief as teachers we are here to help our students learn all they need to become successful individuals in society. I also believe we are here to plant that seed of curiosity so they will always want to be life long learners.
I have been here at Nash Elementary for my 20 year career. I student taught at Davis Bilingual and I had many years of volunteer work in my children's schools.
