Principal, Woodmen-Roberts Elementary
Favorite thing about D20?
The community. I love the sense of community here.
Favorite teaching moment?
When I was teaching 6th grade at Mountain Ridge Middle School a boy forgot to stay after school. He rode the bus home and then remembered he was supposed to be at school. He ran all the way back to school and asked if it would still count. This made me realize kids need rules and accountability and they will rise.
Little known fact?
I have three kids and they are all two years apart – almost to the day. I might be a planner.
What advice would you give your younger self?
Slow down, there is always time.
Why is education the field for you? This is what I have always wanted to do, teach and help people.
You have to first believe in yourself if you want others to believe in you. Have the confidence to jump!
What gets you jazzed?
Making the world shake and being better today than yesterday.
