Favorite Quote/Fun Fact

“If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow.” -John Dewey

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

I teach because I love the ah ha moments when the lightbulb goes off in a child’s head, when the student smiles so big that it melts your heart, and the life long skills that we are giving to our students is priceless.

Why Roycemore?

I am at Roycemore because of the connections I make with the students, their families, and the faculty. It is a home here. The people I work with including the students are here to make a difference and to solve every problem thrown at them.
