Every week, The Cranberry Eagle will spotlight a local educator, providing a glimpse into what makes them tick.

QUESTION: Why did you become a teacher?

ANSWER: I am not sure what inspired me to become a teacher. The inspiration must have been pretty strong because ever since I was in kindergarten I knew I wanted to be a teacher. There wasn’t a time that I ever wanted to be anything else.

QUESTION: What is one sentence that sums up what you believe is the key to teaching?

ANSWER: I believe that the biggest key to success in the classroom is developing a positive and nurturing environment where the children are inspired, motivated and encouraged to reach high expectations every day.

QUESTION: When you’re not teaching, you most likely can be found doing what?

ANSWER: I love to spend any free time I have traveling. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends and taking my dogs to the park.

QUESTION: What is one thing about you that likely would surprise your students?

ANSWER:When I was in elementary school I hated reading. It wasn’t until I was in college that I actually liked to read.
