Where did you grow up?
What's your favorite movie?
That is hard to say but Elf is definitely on the top of my list.
What's your favorite food?
My comfort food is Mac and Cheese, but when it doubt, I will cook or go buy Thai food.
Why did you become a teacher?
I have always found myself working with kids from being a babysitter, running a summer camp, to now teaching. I always enjoyed every aspect of each job and it wasn't until my mom and a few old coworkers pointed me in the direction of Raskob that I felt like I truly found my place.
How would you describe your teaching style?
I would consider myself a very go with the flow person in the classroom who also looks for new and interesting ways to engage the students through units like PBL and Genius Hour. Allowing lessons to be led in the direction of student interest and questions is a large part of many lessons throughout the day. This is interesting because outside of the classroom, I would say that I am a pretty routine individual who doesn't do well with too much change.
What is your favorite thing to teach?
Interesting enough, math has become one of my favorite classes to teach. As a child, I did not enjoy math and struggled quite a bit with it. It may be this experience that makes me enjoy teaching math so much to make it more accessible and fun for students.
What makes Raskob a special place?
The community. Raskob is a safe place for students and families and it is this community that makes up the caring, hardworking, and special place we all call Raskob.
