What is your favorite memory of being in school? My favorite memory of being in school was in kindergarten. My teacher made a classroom grocery store out of used food boxes. We were given “money” to buy food from the store. This simple activity made me love going to school and was actually when I decided I wanted to become a teacher!
What do you value most about St. Patrick? I value the warm, caring atmosphere at St. Patrick’s. I look forward to being part of the community!
Who or what inspires you most? People who are kind and go out of their way to help others inspires me. Life is all about helping others!
What do you like to do in your free time? In my free time, I like to teach and play tennis. I also enjoy gardening, working out, and quilting.
What is the best advice you have ever received? The best advice I ever received is a quote by Maya Angelou which I think about everyday and try to live by. “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
