In her own words . . .

“I find the teaching profession to be very rewarding. Seeing a student grasp a difficult concept after a lengthy explanation or lesson is very satisfying, and one of the reasons why I became a teacher. The ability to inspire and nurture young minds into seeing and developing their potential is such an honor and responsibility, and one that I do not take lightly.”
