Why did you decide to become a teacher?: I taught swimming, cello and tennis lessons when I was a teenager and loved it. Even though I loved those teaching experiences I never thought I would actually become a teacher. I started as an Architecture major then switched to business and finally realized teaching is what I was supposed to be doing all along. I also come from a family of teachers, so it must be in my DNA.
How long you been teaching?: This is my third year teaching and my second year at Spring Lake.
