In her own words…

“I believe that one of the most important things I can do for my students is to take the time to understand them and their needs to develop relationship with each and every one of them…Yes, I teach them about letters and numbers, but I also teach them so much more…most importantly, I teach them that they are important and how they feel matters.”
