Why I chose to work at Aspen: I choose to work at Aspen because I believe in the school and what we are doing. Aspen is filled with wonderful staff, students and families and we keep working to grow and improve.

Something new I hope to incorporate in my teaching this year is: The Daily 5. I've heard wonderful things about it and became very excited when I read the book this summer. I look forward to watching the Kindergarteners grow in confidence and independence in their reading ability.

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy spending time with family and friends, running, baking and exploring with my dogs.

Favorite author/historical figure: Dr. Seuss

Personal motto/inspirational quote: "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose!" Dr. Seuss
