  • A Teachable Moment

    In college, I had a professor who saw me not just as a paper to grade or a mind to teach, but as a real person. Dr. Drexler inspired me to make connections with my kids in a similar way- to know their hobbies and interests, to know what's going on in their lives and what they're involved in. It's important to remember that my kids don't exist in a vacuum- they have lives outside of my classroom that impact them.

  • What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me

    Every child has a spark within them. That spark can sputter and waiver if not carefully tended and as educators, it is our mission to ensure that this spark is carefully tended and nurtured to become a roaring fire. I want for my students to be energized when they find connections in my content to their world and to the world outside of Lake County. I want my kids to embrace the challenge of becoming global citizens by lighting that spark that motivates them to explore andengage with the rest of the world.
