“I am passionate about helping our students gain the self-confidence to share their personal gifts with those around them. Joy in learning is contagious and we have fun in the classroom every day! Whether we are exploring themes in George Eliot’s Silas Marner, or traveling through Dante’s Divine Comedy in Italian III, we learn together, and I make new discoveries through the students’ insights every day. A true gift!”
