In her own words: “I believe that there is a teacher hidden somewhere deep inside of every single one of us! We can all think back to different situations where we had to explain something – how to ride a bike, help someone fill out an application… being a teacher comes naturally to all of us at one time or another. Some decide to embrace the calling.”

In the words of others: “She exemplifies excellence in teaching on a daily basis. Her devotion to her CUBS specialized program students, her positive attitude in and out of the classroom, and her willingness to give 150 percent to everything she sets her mind to is why our staff voted to give her the special honor of Bendwood Teacher of the Year!” Jana Bassett, The Bendwood School Principal
