Began at Teachwell:
Why did you choose this field?
I was called to be a teacher.
What was your favorite subject in school?
Study Hall. I was far more social than academic in my younger days.
I am passionate about learning and the opportunities it provides, and I believe in Teachwell's mission.
What keeps you motivated?
My former students would say coffee. (I am a bit of a coffee snob.) But what really motivates me is helping people realize the best in themselves.
How do you hope to make a difference?
I hope to make a difference by empowering students and inspiring hope. My students learn quickly that I have high expectations and I believe in them.
Goals for the future?
My goals in life are simple: to be faithful, to build a strong family, to help those in need and to be kind.
What is your background experience – degrees, experience, skills?
Bachelors Degree from Northern State University with majors in Elementary and Special Education. I have a variety of teaching experience in public and private settings with a focus on working with at-risk youth.
