    3rd grade

    ​I started teaching at Douglass in 1993, right after I finished my education program. My "everyday thought" is this: They actually pay me to do this?! I get to hang out with kids who love school and life, parents who are involved and supportive, in one of the top districts in the country. I love it! My father-in-law is my hero because he told me a loooong time ago that I should find something I love to do and I'll never work a day in my life. He was right...​

    In Spiderman, Uncle Ben says, "With great power, comes great responsibility."  I know I don't have super powers, but what I say and do has great power on a 3rd grader, and I take that responsibility seriously.
