I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher. I never considered any other possibilities. I specifically wanted to teach first grade because l loved my first grade teacher. Her name was Mrs. Hudson. I thought she was fantastic. I have a passion for reading. I believe that reading gives you the ability to accomplish your dreams. I take pride in working with children and giving them tools to become readers.

When I am not working, my favorite thing to do is be with my son. He is a fourth grader at Roosevelt. We like to cook, work hard, play games, watch movies and go on bike rides. We have played UNO almost everyday for the past five years. He beats me most of the time.
