Q: How long have you been at Driscoll?  Tell us what you did before coming to Driscoll.
A: I've been at Driscoll for 12 years!  This is my fifth year as a kindergarten teacher.  I used to work in the preschool, DEDP, and I did student teaching in a second grade classroom.  Q: Tell us how you decided to become a teacher.A: I used to work at camps a lot and always enjoyed working and playing with kids.  When I started working in the preschool here, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in education.  Q: What is your favorite part of the teaching day?  What is most important to you as you spend your days with children?A: I love problem solving with my class.  Whether it's figuring out a problem in our classroom or how to support students in a conflict, I enjoy helping students become more independent with their self-help skills.  Q: Fun Fact! What's something we should know about you that we don't?
A: I love working with computer hardware.  I'm not great at coding, but I can build just about any computer!
