I enjoy the teaching process. I enjoy being able to interact with my students, and help them find and learn new information. I also enjoy seeing them create and design projects after they learn the skills they need to know.


  1. What are the biggest challenges that you face being an English teacher?

The toughest challenges are juggling paper work and planning and also knowing what activities I want students to complete digitally versus writing with pen and paper.

Seeing my first crop of seventh graders graduate and then every class their forward graduate.

15 years.
