Q&A Section:

What is something you like to do the old-fashioned way? What is your reason behind it?

I like to read actual books, I love the way they smell. Another thing I love to do is send letters by mail, not electronically. There is just something about putting your thoughts down on paper and mailing it that is meaningful.


What fictional place would you most like to go to? Why?

Hogwarts!!!!! Who wouldn’t want to go to Hogwarts?


What are some small things that make your day better?

My coffee every morning, it’s a great way to start my day. I love when my students tell me about their day and things that are taking place in their life, outside of the classroom.


What would be your first question after waking up from being cryogenically frozen for 100 years?

Are there flying cars yet?


What quirks do you have?

Although my classroom may not always look like it, I am obsessed with organization. All the cans in my pantry face a certain way, things are categorized and labeled.


What is the best piece of advice that you believe you could give to the students you teach?

The best piece of advice that I could give my students is to find their voice and do everything with kindness. This world lacks empathy and I know that they can fix that. We are all fighting our own battles each and every day but if they can find their voice and stand up for what they truly believe in then at least we are heading in the right direction.
