Family is SUPER important to me! I have a very close family and it means the world to me. I am very fortunate to have the family support that I do but I recognize that not everyone has the same family bond that I grew up with. That is why I want to be the type of teacher that students can see as their family member while they are at school. I want to be someone that children can look up to and look at for the support they may be lacking elsewhere.
This is my family (from left to right): my older sisters Melissa and Kate, my mom Bev, my dad Gerry, me, and my younger sister Rachel.
