Please Share Your Thoughts on Being Named Teacher of the Year & What This Recognition Means to You.

To be named Teacher of the Year at North Elementary is a testament of true teamwork and what it means to be a North Cardinal. My classroom, Making the Connection, can only succeed with teamwork. The progress and success of each student is because of the village of staff members willing to adapt and learn about each child's unique way of learning, how they grow and what they need to reach their goals. 


What Inspired You to Enter the World of Teaching and Education?

I was blessed to have family members with multiple disabilities. The interactions I was given with them shaped and molded my love of Special Education and becoming a learning specialist.  I enjoy each and every day of teaching. The students are an amazing gift when they welcome you into their lives and accept you as a teacher that understands them and pushes you to want to keep succeeding.
