Favorite Quote:  "The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist.'" -Maria Montessori

 

What profession other than your own would you most like to attempt?

 

Baking. I love to cook and bake and try new techniques. I enjoy making cakes and cookies for friends and decorating them.

 

What is the greatest misconception about teachers?

 

That they only work from 8:00-4:00 when the students are there.


What stereotype about teachers is true?


Their clothes. Every time I ask my Hubby for advice on an outfit he says "those look like teacher clothes" and I say "good, that's what they're for, to teach in!"

 

How did you know you wanted to be a teacher?

I was in high school and had some really great and really horrible teachers throughout the years.  I had seen some students become really misunderstood about lessons, such as math. I knew that if I was the teacher then the students would understand the material better and would be treated better and that's when I knew that I wanted to be a teacher and help those who were cast off because they learned differently than others.
