3. What do you like most about your job?
The children are so eager to learn and they have so much fun doing so. I love being a part of that process. Also, where else can you go to work and get an abundance of hugs every day?!
5. What do you think is special about your ADPP location?
We have such a community atmosphere on the Amber Elementary campus. All of us, teachers, administrators, students and parents, treat each other with care and respect.
6. What is your favorite part of the day at ADPP?
“Enrichment Time”! Whether it is art, science music or social studies, this is a chance to creatively teach the material in a fun and exciting manner.
9. What is the funniest thing a child has said/done in your class?
They make me laugh every day! Most recently, I overheard two boys talking about why they did not want to become dads: One said, “To be a dad, you have to get married.” The other boy replied, “Yeah, and when you’re married you have to get a job…and when you have a job, you have to take a shower EVERY DAY!”
11. What achievement are you most proud of?
I am proud to be a teacher that makes a difference in children’s lives. I love being able to watch “my” children grow and make progress through their years at Primary Plus and beyond.
14. Do you have any healthy lunch ideas?
Sliced deli meats, low fat cheeses, dried or fresh fruits. These are healthier and less expensive than “Lunchables” type packages and you can cater them to meet your child’s preferences..
15. Do you have any learning to read tips?
Read with your children every day. Model good reading habits by following the words with your finger and even stop occasionally and phonetically “sound out” easy words. Challenge your children to read signs they see while riding in the car, you’ll both be surprised at the number of words they recognize!
