I really enjoyed my computer classes and social studies when I was in high school.

Why did you decide to be a teacher?
I have always wanted to be a teacher, for as long as I can remember.  When I was younger I played school with my sister, of course I was the teacher. I think at first I  wanted to be a teacher because I liked correcting things and writing in workbooks.

I love dogs! We have a black lab named Buddy.
