What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Going to the beach in the summer, watching reality TV with my friends, and playing with my cat.
What are people most surprised to learn about you?
I come from a very big family – I have over 30 first cousins!
What drew you to education?
My first job in high school was as a children’s birthday party host! I used to lead science-themed parties where the main activity was different experiments. That job made me realize that I loved working with youth. Since then, I’ve taken on different teaching roles and worked with various age groups. My favorite part about education is relationship building. Being a support system for my students is what makes me love teaching.
