I have so many favorites who have challenged me and inspired me. That is probably why I chose to go into education. One of my favorites is Mrs. Cristadoro. She was always kind and understanding, listening to kids and cheering them on. I was so fortunate to not only have her for first grade but to also teach alongside her at Hoxie and Bournedale. She continues to be a role model for me.
If you were not in education what other profession would you like to attempt? I love animals, and I would have enjoyed working with exotic animals in a zoo.
Do you have pets? Yes, I have a yellow lab named Bella, a cat, and a small flock of chickens.
Favorite Color? I love periwinkle.
Favorite Quote or Saying? “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” By Albert Einstein
Where is the farthest place you have ever traveled? Although I am not a world traveler, I love to escape with my family to the White Mountains of New Hampshire whenever I get the chance. You can find me in a tent near the river. ☺
Favorite Food? Lobster…served anyway. ☺
Hobbies or Activities/Organizations you are active in? I love to go bike riding, hiking, and camping with my family. I also enjoy gardening, planting a large vegetable garden in the spring.
