I have a love for learning and creating new things. I love exploring by doing, especially through art. I have a love of research and history, and I enjoy going to museums and new places. I enjoy researching and learning about a historical building and will Google the name of a small town, while driving across country, to learn about the town’s source of income. I enjoy getting my hands dirty and making a mess in the yard, or my home. I can embrace change and be flexible or compromise in situations. I have a love for physical activity and believe in the importance of movement and exercise. I have a love for the outdoors, playing outside, in the mountains, in water and on the beach. I have a love for my children and all children I interact with and want to be a role model, to inspire and help them find their path and love for learning. I want to help children develop an understanding of living life to the fullest, through an open mind and exploration and creativity. I want to help them develop their love of learning. That is why I am a teacher, and Why I Do What I Do.
