What attracted you to apply in #PointerNation?: There are many things that attracted me to
#PointerNation, and a main one was how connected and supported I felt growing up here. I love
the small-town feel, and I am very fortunate to be a part of it. It is so comforting to know the
teachers from when I went to school here, so it is nostalgic to be working in the same place! It is
a great pleasure to be working in the Elementary School, and I enjoy being part of my hometown
school, not just as a previous student, but also as an employee.
