What do you love about teaching? I love being able to work with my students to help them discover their future career interests and mapping a path to get there. I also love getting to know my students and helping them overcome obstacles that may make it difficult for them to be successful in school.
What do you love about teaching with Branson? I love that Branson allows students to pursue interests outside of school such as dancing, gymnastics, music, traveling, working, etc which I believes makes them a more well rounded individual and student. I also love that Branson works with non-traditional learners that may have different learning styles and needs and supports students to achieve their goals and learn in a way that makes sense to them.
Favorite season? Why? I love fall because of the beautiful colors and slightly cooler weather. I also enjoy sitting outside at our fire pit and roasting marshmallows with my husband and boys this time of year.
