I am a life-long learning; by profession, I am a special education teacher. I teach with passion and the belief that within each student is the "inner teacher" guiding them to find the answers to life's most important questions. With that said, I seek creative ways to help my students discover their inner teacher. I find myself involved in a lot of projects and programs. Other interests include: writing and reflecting on my teaching practice, hosting guests at my BnB, DIY home projects, gardening, composting, aquaponics, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

I am an Associate of the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart which at the heart is showing compassion and doing works of neighborly love.
