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. My life values are guided by the Gospel of Jesus and the Franciscan Charism. 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.
