Why are you an educator? – I became a teacher because I really enjoy working with children. I love the enthusiasm they bring to so much of what they do. I enjoy seeing their boundless energy channeled into activities that help them reach their full potential. Finally, I became an educator because nothing can beat the opportunity to witness those lightbulb moments when a students grasps a new idea or particularly difficult concept.
What do you enjoy most about your career?- I really enjoy interacting with my students and helping them achieve their learning goals.
What do you do in your spare/free time? – I spend my time with my family – my husband and our four children. We enjoy going to their various sporting events, scouting activities, and music recitals. We also enjoy spending time outdoors biking, hiking, and working in our garden. My favortie “me-time” activity is reading a good book.
What does being a member of the Vacaville Teachers Association mean to you? – Being a VTA member means I have a voice with my school district and a union that will stand in solidarity with me to ensure that we are valued as educators.
