What do you love most about your job?
I most enjoy interacting with my students and colleagues.
What are specific traits you work to identify and grow in students?
I want students to be responsible, confident, independent thinkers who love learning.
Why did you choose to work in an all-girls education environment?
An all-girls school is the perfect environment to instill the qualities such as responsibility, confidence, and having a positive attitude in our students.
Why did you choose RPCS?
I chose RPCS because of its commitment to life-long learning, and its spirited atmosphere. I was especially excited to teach in the sixth grade in the Middle School because we were the first (in the school, I think) to work as a team of teachers. Now I have been here for thirty years!
Why is education at the grade level you teach important?
Sixth grade is the entrée to the Middle School here at RPCS, which is an exciting time. Students crave and need greater independence, and they are ready for the responsibility. They are making the transition from literal to abstract thinkers, and it is exciting to be part of shaping this development.
