What is your most rewarding part of the day at JHCS?

I have three "most rewarding" times. First thing is that the morning is always fun as students and teachers arrive, greet each other, and catch up. I also love Town Hall because it is run by students and because the entire community is together, laughing and talking and giving kudos. And I always have fun in whatever class I'm teaching because talking about interesting ideas with young people is one of my favorite things to do!

What drew you to the field of education?

I stumbled into it accidentally and discovered that I loved being part of engaging, energized learning communities. Education combines intellectualism, relationships, creativity, and the feeling of making a positive impact in one's community. What's not to love?
