He has great ideas to share and is always willing to listen to others. During Habit Huddle, when we learn more about the Seven Habits of Happy Kids, I love hearing his insight into the quotes and activities that we do and how he is applying all that he has learned to help him grow as a leader.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE EDUCATION AS A PROFESSION? “My story of becoming an educator started in second grade. I had the teacher of a lifetime, who was kind, loving and accepting of mistakes. As I grew up and began thinking of careers, I often thought back to that teacher and her ability to motivate, make students feel special and grow students to their full potential. I knew that education was the path for me and I truly enjoy what I do. I wake up every morning dedicated to trying to be the teacher my students need me to be. I work hard to truly ‘know’ my students. I eat lunch with them. I hang out with them at recess. We talk about their dreams, their fears and their struggles. I do this because the better I know my students’ hearts, the better I can serve them.”
