No, I am the Activities director, though.

I absolutely love to read! Other than that, I also enjoy traveling, walking my dog, and watching movies.


4. Do you have any kids?



5. Do you have any pets? If so, what are their names and breed?

I have two cats named Boo and Scout, and I don't really know their breeds, other than they're white with grey spots. I also have a dog that my husband and I are "dog sitting," and his name is Tucker. He's a Russian Spaniel.


6. What were your favorite class(es) when you were in high school?

They were easily English and Yearbook.


7. When you were in school what did you think your future job would be?

Oh, when I was in preschool I came home one day and told my mom I wanted to be a teacher. Once or twice I thought of being a journalist, but I decided that being a teacher would be the job that actually made me very happy.


8. What inspired you to be a teacher?

I had mostly amazing teachers throughout my school years, so they really helped as well.


9.What is your favorite part of your job? What is your least favorite?

I love having students come in during their freshmen year and watch as they grow up. I usually have the same students for four years, so that helps. I love my job, even if it can be exhausting because I need to be at all of the school thrown events.


10. Do you have an interesting story or fact about yourself that you would be comfortable in sharing?

I'm a scuba diver, so once I went on a shark dive in Fiji. We sat in a circle and there was a pile of squid and other bits of fish for the sharps, and we got to watch them dart by with their mouths open and grab the food.


11. If you had to use three words to describe yourself what would they be?

Dedicated, organized, and optimistic.
