"Enriching the lives of my students and peers is important to me, so I love to share!! I just know that some of my best ideas, projects, and plans were developed with the help and ideas from others! I love to connect and crowd-source for all things big and small! I believe in having experiences of your own and learning the experiences of everyone we love to grow our compassion and empathy for others. I believe in research and facts, and figuring out the world using common sense, compassion, and truthfulness is something we have to help our students get through. Parent and community engagement is something I take seriously because parents and community stakeholders make a big difference in the success of our students. I truly want to help decrease the negative perception that parents can have of the school system, and I want to find ways to be truly engaged in family and community involvement."
