I am married with two children: a teenager, Torie and a one year baby, Elie. My family is very important to me. I think I went into the teaching profession because I enjoy working with children of all ages. After graduation, I accepted a job in a Head Start classroom to be in the same school as my daughter. I worked there for six years and really enjoyed it. I then returned to the elementary setting for the next couple of years as a TIRE teacher. This year I finally received the opportunity to be in my own classroom. It has been an amazing experience and I love it!
