Why did you become a teacher? I always knew I wanted to be a teacher from a very young age. However, I had some very inspiring teachers in elementary school here at West Salem who made a positive influence which made me want to go to college and become a teacher at the elementary level.
What do you love most about the West Salem School District? I love the small town feel and that I have this amazing opportunity to teach in my hometown. I enjoy sharing the history of West Salem with my students and sharing stories of what it was like when I was growing up. The community is very supportive of education and I enjoy teaching in the same district my children attend.
A little more… I live just outside West Salem in Barre Mills. My husband and I have 2 beautiful daughters. We enjoy watching our children dance and play sports. During the summer we take short weekend getaways and we usually take a longer vacation, as well. We also spend time on the river fishing, camping or tubing. I enjoy reading as many books as I can in the summer while also gardening in my many flower beds.
