Tell us about yourself!
The ocean is my happy place! Any chance I get to have the wind blow through my hair and the sand between my toes, I will take it. It does not even matter to me what the weather is like because the beach just calms my soul. 

When I was younger, I always told people I wanted to be anything but a teacher. However, that all changed when my junior year of high school hit. My teachers were on strike, and I had nothing better to do at home all day, so I went to my mom's school with her where she teaches kindergarten. While I was there, I helped out in different classrooms and fell in love with teaching. It was from that moment on that I knew I was meant to be a teacher. 

One last fun fact about myself is I love fun pens. I am a firm believer that you can never have too many flair pens or gel pens! 
What made you want to work for Shelton School District?
I have heard great things about the Shelton School District for the past couple of years. I love that Shelton School District has a big vision for the future. I also wanted to work for Shelton once I heard from my best friend how supportive they are of new teachers. 
What do you look forward to the most about working here?
I am very excited to work in the Shelton School District. I know many people who have worked in the district for a while now and love it. I am looking forward to all of the relationships that I will build with my co-workers, students, and their families. 
What do you love about teaching?
Like anyone, there are many things I love about teaching. One of my favorite things about teaching is seeing the lightbulb finally go off for a student who has been working so hard at a certain concept. I also love that as their teacher I get to be their biggest cheerleader and supporter. 
What is one way you hope to inspire, challenge, and/or empower students?
One way I hope to inspire, challenge, and empower my students is to show them that they are capable of anything they set their minds to. I want all of my students to aspire to be lifelong learners and critical thinkers.
