Female teacher smiling outsideWhy did you decide to become a teacher?

I really "fell" into teaching. I was coaching field hockey and the Latin teacher, who was an 85-year-old nun, was ready to retire. I loved Latin, so I thought I might like teaching it, and here I am 21 years later, loving what I do!

Who was your mentor growing up?

The headmaster of my school was my Latin teacher, and his wife was my field hockey and lacrosse coach. They were huge influences in my life. Latin, field hockey, and lacrosse are my passions!

What is your teaching philosophy?

Work hard, do the best you can, be nice, and have fun.

Favorite snack?

Ice cream (coffee and mint chocolate chip)

Favorite movie?

Gladiator with Russell Crowe.

Favorite thing to do in the summer time?

This is a tough question! There are so many things I like to do in the summer! Go to the beach with my family, play field hockey, coach camps, gardening, traveling.
