Why did you choose education as a career?
 ” I was one of those people who always knew what they wanted to be when they grew up.  My mom was a teacher and I wanted to fill that role as well.   As I went through the school system, I had several teachers that made a huge impact on my learning and helped mold me to whom I am now.   I want to be that same positive person that shows children they are worth every drop of blood, sweat, and tears.  “
What is the first on your list of priorities for the position?
 ” My first priority is to smile at each child that comes into my classroom.  Building a relationship with each of them will make this year more successful!  My goal is to let them know I care about them and how hard I’m going to work to make each day, the best day yet!”
