What I love about the grade I teach: 

I love teaching 5th grade. I enjoy coming to work everyday and learning something new from these students. The light bulb moments they have when learning a harder topic is my favorite thing about teaching!


Why I chose Riverside: 

This is my first year teaching, so during the searching I wanted to find a place where I could continue learning, participating in new experiences, and being supported along the way. I found this all at Riverside, and I can't wait to see where this road takes me!


What makes me PROUD to be a Bulldog: 

I am PROUD to be a Bulldog when I see my students helping each other out. I am PROUD to be a Bulldog when I see my students showing respect to not only others but also to themselves.
