What do you most love about teaching?
I enjoy helping students reach their potential. I enjoy working with students, on every level of learning, to help them gain confidence and to watch them grow beyond what they thought they could achieve. I also enjoy the personal aspect of watching teenagers mature into young adults who have dreams and aspirations.
What makes NNPS a great school division?
NNPS is a great school division because of their vision for all students and the development of their staff. The employees of NNPS work together to create a positive and rigorous classroom setting for students of all levels. Additionally, the support among staff, the friendships, and the commonality to care for and provide a safe and motivational work environment makes working for NNPS a satisfying and enjoyable experience.
Why are you passionate about supporting fellow teachers?
I am passionate about helping other teachers because of the way other teachers have supported me. As I am turning the page and becoming a more seasoned teacher, I realize what I have learned and how I have grown, but most importantly, how I still want to improve. I am surrounded by a very dedicated department of professionals who consistently want to rise to the challenge of meeting and exceeding the educational goals for their students. We all work together to support and motivate one another to be the best at our craft in preparing the next generation for success. When teachers help one another, everyone learns and grows. Teaching is an exhausting, fulfilling, enjoyable, challenging job that brings me joy and happiness. My desire is to pass this passion on to others.
