3rd Grade Teacher

My Why Story

From a very early age I knew I wanted to be a teacher.  When I was in the 5th grade, we had to study a career that we were interested in pursuing.  Instantly I knew I wanted to study what it would take to become a teacher.  One part of the project was to shadow someone for a day to experience what is was like to do that job.  A close friend’s mom was a teacher at a different school. I was able to spend the day in her 2nd grade classroom.  I loved working with the kids and helping them discover new things.

Fast forward to my senior year.  My love of teaching remained and I decided to pursue a degree in elementary education at Northern Arizona University.  It was the best decision I’ve ever made. Teaching is my passion and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
