About Me
What I like about teaching is...: 

Teaching in an IB school is never boring because teachers and students are always learning from and with each other. We are all life-long learners!

What I like about my school is...: 

McGraw is a student-centered school that empowers every child to soar to their full potential as a learner. I value the strong collaboration between staff and parents to provide students a world class education through the IB Primary Years Program.

Hobbies and interests include...: 

playing piano, listening to music, hiking and backpacking, gardening, reading books, photography, cooking and playing with my kids

My favorite book is...: 

Les Miserables - a timeless story with characters that everyone can relate to. The musical is good also.

Something most people do not know about me is...: 

I can juggle!

My favorite quote is...: 

"Education is not filling a bucket but lighting a fire."
- William Butler Yeats
