Place of Birth: Philadelphia
Years in Education: 1st-year teacher, 22 years of being a student!
Pet Peeve(s): People that are rude, and that don’t want to learn, and are lazy and inconsiderate or rude to others. I have no respect for people that will not apologize or admit a wrongdoing.

Favorite Song: I don’t have one! I love many, many different songs that I love.
Most Influential Teacher: My third grade teacher and my high school biology teacher: they helped me develop a lifelong love of learning, coupled with a firm and loving hand. Their mindset helped me in my years as an engineer, and their example will serve me well as a new teacher.

Gas Station Order: I rarely eat at the gas station, but: an energy drink (occasionally) and a chicken sandwich and chips.
