Learning is FUNdamental! I believe that learning should be fun and that students need to believe that you truly care about them in order for them to trust and respect where you are trying to take them academically.

I come from a family of teacher's and preacher's, so it was in my blood to become an educator. I have always wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl. I have especially dreamed of being a teacher that helps build a strong educational foundation for my students. I am very passionate about what I do.
