Why I Teach

I once had a friend tell me that she noticed that after work, I was always exhausted, but happy. This job is so challenging, and everyday is different, but at the end of the day it's so rewarding. As teachers we get to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, we get to make connections and affect change in these little humans lives. Plus I get to sing, dance, and be silly in front of a captive audience!

Outside of work I love going on outdoor adventures, whether that's going to the beach, kayaking, swimming, boating, or hiking to a beautiful location! I'm looking forward to adventures with my new little adventure buddy Inigo Montoya!

Character Trait of the Month

Respect - Respeto

Seeing the good in people and things and treating them with care.

We are also talking about Respect in the context of using good manners, not using inappropriate or offensive language, being courteous to one another, resolving conflicts peacefully, and treating one another as we would want to be treated (and how they want to be treated!).

Ver lo bueno en las personas y las cosas y tratarlas con cuidado.

También estamos hablando de Respeto en el contexto de usar buenos modales, no usar lenguaje inapropiado u ofensivo, ser corteses con los demás, resolver conflictos pacíficamente y tratarnos como nos gustaría que nos traten a nosotros (y cómo ellos quieren ser tratados !).
