Why I enjoy teaching: 

I love helping kids learn something new. That moment when they have an "Ah-Ha!" and discover something for themselves is incredbily rewarding!

What I like most about my school: 

Bacon is such a great environment. The parents, staff, and students are all very welcoming and fun to work with!

Interest & Hobbies: 

I love anything outdoors: hiking, biking, snowboarding especially. Of course, I also perfectly content to sit in the park with a good book on a Saturday!

My Favorite Book: 

The Lost Continent by Bill Bryson. It's absolutely hilarious!

First year as a Bacon Bulldog: 
2 011
Something most people don't know about me: 

I love working with my hands - I enjoy making furnuture and crafts for my kids out of wood.
