I love my kids. I love teaching. The best parts of my day are the times I get to connect with the kids, 1:1 and be silly or have those “ah-ha” learning moments. I love working with adults who sing, who encourage creativity, who play and work hard and who relate to the community that we serve. We work in service and we do this because it is what we love. The work is not always easy, but it is life changing.”
