I have been at Akiba-Schechter since:

2013.

Education/degrees:

Bachelors in Science and Masters in Early Childhood Education

I like to teach because:

I can’t really pick out a particular area that I like to teach. I love doing individual work with the children to get to see their own ideas come out. It is so fun to give them all the same topic and then getting to see how they make it their own.   

My favorite part of teaching is:

seeing when a child has one of those “Aha” moments. Their entire face lights up when a connection is made and then there is this enthusiasm that is so contagious. 

I became a teacher because:

I am thinking back to when I was in Kindergarten myself and thinking how fun it would be to be the teacher, and that was it. I have never wanted to do anything else, except run my own pet store, and I have loved every experience I have had. 

I'm known by my students for:

being silly.

When I'm not teaching, I

am usually hanging out with my dog. We love to go for walks and going to the park.
