If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be? I would either be hiking somewhere warm or laying on the beach in the Mediterranean. 

What do you think are the best skills that you bring to your job? Passion, patience, and persistence.  The best teachers I have witnessed love what they teach and the students they teach.  Great teachers constantly strive to improve and adapt to the needs of students that are ever evolving. I start my job every day knowing that whether it’s going to be the best day or a difficult one, being a teacher is my life’s passion and what God intended for my life.
