I love seeing my students faces in the ‘aha’ moment. When they find a connection during a lesson/activity and they realize this moment means something in the real world.

The Willow Family is like no other, and I enjoy being a part of the community. It brings me joy to work with families and teachers who are all advocates for the leaders of our future.
