What attracted you to apply in #PointerNation?: Experiencing other school districts after student teaching for Mineral Point, I quickly realized that I wanted to be a member of this incredible school district and community. This is where we want to start and raise a family as part of #PointerNation.
Quotable: “My journey to becoming an educator has been amazing. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a teacher. Although I fell in love with teaching and helping others at a young age, my passion for helping others has grown.
I aim to bring creativity, excitement, passion, and involvement into my classroom every day. I want my students to be involved in their learning. When my students are involved, they are focused on what they are learning and enjoy it. My goal is to inspire my students to seize every opportunity to learn because knowledge is something they will have forever.”
