I am creative. 

Not only do I love making things and designing curriculum, I thrive on the process of expansive thinking and am content to live with uncertainty.  I find this valuable as an educator, because life is full of unanswerable questions.




I am persistent.

I don't give up on my self, my dreams, or my students. Because of this, I am motivated by hope.

I am a life-long learner.

Nothing makes my toes tingle more than playing around and learning something new.  My curiosity about the world and desire to learn through exploration helps me to design activities that are engaging for students.
