Fifth-year, fourth grade ELA teacher in Alexandria, Virginia.
Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a teacher but if you asked me as a little girl I would've answered mermaid. In school, I was always a quick learner, and loved being able to help my fellow students through particularly hard homework assignments or classwork whenever I finished early. As an ELA teacher, I want to instill in every child a love of reading. I picked up reading easily when I was younger, but didn't learn to love it until a little later. I have to thank my parents for that. My mother for showing me a what good reader looks like, and my dad, of course. Because of him I am the reader I am the reader I am today. Dad read me the first four "Harry Potter" books and those hours of bonding are something that I'll always cherish. Mom never got into the series but has always said that she has a firm appreciation for the books because they taught me to love reading. #LiveYourPassions
