Why do you love teaching? I love to share my experiences with my students.  I like to help children achieve their best even though they are so young and fresh from home.  I want to inspire students to dream big and become anything they want to be.  I feel rewarded when that little light bulb goes off “I got it teacher, I know how to do this by myself”.  I love getting to know my students and their families.  Most of all, I like to see students transform from knowing nothing to being able to read and do math the end of the school year.
