When did I know I wanted to be a teacher?  When I was in 5th grade I had the most inspirational teacher, Mrs. Koch.  She made learning fun and I never wanted to miss a day of school because of her.

Teaching Philosophy:
I believe that teachers who demonstrate curiosity and enthusiasm about a subject area motivate students to learn. It is my desire as an educator to help my students meet their fullest potential by providing an environment that is safe, encouraging and fun. I want to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them.
