I have been teaching 8th grade history for 22 years at North Middle. I really enjoy the middle school child because they are so unpredictable and in transition from being a child to a teen. I enjoy helping them make that transition. Like most teachers I enjoy seeing children learn and change. Seeing the light bulb go off in children is the greatest reward a teacher can have. Building relationships that last a life time is also great reward. Teaching is a second career for me. Teaching, however, has always been a part of my life. Teaching in the public school system is a great privilege and responsibility that I take seriously.

"The thing I loved the most - and still love the most about teaching - is that you can connect with an individual or a group, and see that individual or group exceed their limits." Mike Krzyzewski
