Why did you become a teacher? It was very easy for me to choose a profession before I began college because I had always loved children and had a passion for helping people, so I put the two together and became a teacher!

What goals do you have for your students? Every year my goals for each of my students are to learn how to become well rounded citizens, to solve problems independently and develop the enthusiasm for learning.

What do you encourage parents to do at home to help their children strengthen particular skills? I know that home life can be very hectic, especially with after school events and working parents. I always encourage parents to stop and take 15 minutes to read to their child or to have their child read to them. I think it is so important for children and parents to develop the love and appreciation of reading as a family unit.
