What is your favorite childhood book? 

My favorite childhood book is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone because I fell in love with the entire magical world that J.K Rowling created from the spells to friendships. 

 What is your secret talent?  

My secret talent is baking. I really enjoy to bake all kinds of different pastries including pies, cakes, macarons, and my favorite, Challah bread. 

 Who was your favorite teacher in Elementary School and Why? 

 My favorite teacher in elementary school was my 5th grade teacher Mrs. Rigby. She made learning so much fun with her games, jokes, and something she called “piggy bucks”. I looked forward to school every day that year.

 What is your favorite thing about teaching? 

My favorite thing about teaching is the students. I absolutely love working with children. I think kids are brilliant and that not only do I teach them, but they teach me. 

 What is your favorite subject to teach and why?   

My favorite subject to teach is reading because I believe that books open a whole other world to explore. I hope to instill a love of learning and a love for books in my students. 

 Why are you excited to be a part of the Willow family? 

I am very excited to be a part of the Willow family. I had the pleasure of working here as a para for three years and am so happy to be back because Willow truly creates an amazing one of a kind environment. The staff, students, and families make this school one of the best places to be.
