What do you like most about teaching?
I love it when students have an “aha” moment, that they’re getting it and enjoying it — that they’re learning.
What do you most look forward to about teaching in Monroe this fall?
Reconnecting with teachers and the community here, seeing some of the students again and meeting new ones. I was a student teacher at Masuk last spring.
