What is your hometown? Roanoke has been my hometown since age 1.
What’s something your students don’t know about you? That from the ages of 5-11, I competitively raced motorcycles and All-Terrain Vehicles (3 and 4 wheelers), but then someone put a volleyball in my hands and I fell in love.
Who most influenced your decision to teach? I worked at HoneyTree for 15 years and the children became the greatest inspiration for me to teach early childhood. I love kids and apparently they relate well to me as well.
If you didn’t teach, what would you be doing instead? Though I have a Bachelors in Applied Sciences, I would be working in Retail Management love working with people, meeting deadlines and being organized.
What’s your favorite North Cross tradition? I LOVE FAT PENCIL DAY!! Wow, one day my son, Kaimbrydge will be a part of that experience. I so enjoy hearing the seniors discuss how rewarding it was for them as a child to receive their pencil and then as a teen to give a little one their own themselves.
