What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to hang out with my dog and watch TV with my family.

Why did you choose this career?

I chose this career because I love working with children.

Tell us about a favorite teaching moment or time with a child…

My favorite moment with a child was when they asked me to read books to them in the afternoon. The child would sit with me and the other kids would follow and join in.

Favorite place you’ve been and why?

My favorite place that I have been is Melbourne, Australia. My family went back there recently because I was born there and my sister and I got the opportunity to see where we grew up because we were little when we moved to the United States. I felt like I was back home when I went to visit.

Best advice for parents:

Play with your child at home and let them choose the activity to do with you.
