    Why did you choose to work at Arkport?
    I was doing some private contract work with pre-schoolers from this district when a position became available, and I was lucky enough to be pursued by Arkport to fill the spot!

    When I was growing up I always wanted to be a physical therapist.

    When I was in high school I worked at a plumbing and heating store.

    I come from a family of four girls and three of us married a man named Dan!

    What activity do you most enjoy in your free time?
    I love: cheering on my kids and their teammates at sporting events, reading, working out with friends and traveling.

    What makes you laugh?
    I'm blessed to work with incredible students that make me laugh every day!

    If you had a million dollars to give to charity, which would you and why?
    If I had a million dollars to give to charity I would give it to The Hoyt Foundation. Team Hoyt first inspired the world when Dick Hoyt agreed to push the wheelchair of his quadriplegic son, Rick, for a 5-mile race. The father-son duo has completed numerous races - including marathons and triathlons. The Hoyt Foundation aspires to build the individual character, self-confidence and self-esteem of America's disabled young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life - including family and community activities, especially sports - at home, in schools and in the workplace.  

    Fill in the blank: A good day working as a teacher...
    is watching my students accomplish goals that they never imagined possible! Watching students find their voice and grow in their confidence as a communicator is the coolest job ever.
