About me: I'm lucky enough to be in a profession that I LOVE, and I encourage all of my students to find/follow their passion and find a way to get paid for it. In addition to my work as a teacher, I'm a crocheter, reader, learner of ASL, and advocate for disability rights (my daughter has Down Syndrome) and LGBTQ+ rights.
I am also an advocate for the growth mindset. None of us know our true potential, so it's imperative to work hard and TRY.
