Why do you teach? What is the impact you hope to make on students?

I teach because I hope to help kids find their passion in life and become independent thinkers. I provide a lot of projects for my students that allow them to have choice in their own learning, problem solve, and make real world connections. When my students leave my class, I hope that they feel accomplished and capable of taking on challenges.

Why Roycemore?

When I was a student at Roycemore, I always felt cared for, supported, and knew that my voice was being heard. I loved going to school and thrived from being in a small community where I felt known and understood. Now being a teacher, I only have more appreciation for how special a Roycemore education is. Our ability to get to know each student and cater to their specific needs is what makes us so unique.
