In her own words . . .

“As a teacher, I have been blessed with the opportunity to touch the lives of many children. I see a teaching career as the hardest, most rewarding experience anyone can have. My students are my everyday inspiration. They come to school every day carrying the adverse circumstances that they live in, circumstances that no child should have the burden to carry, and yet they put their best foot forward and try to find in school everything they need and lack. So, I feel most obligated to help each and every one of them reach their potential and to inspire in them a love for learning and life – just like they inspire me every day!”
