2021-22 Region 6 and Michigan Teacher of the Year
The intricate dance of daily teaching is exhilarating and challenging. My absolute favorite part about teaching is the moment-to-moment decision-makings- balancing all you know, and all you don’t.
Taking all your experience, all your patience, all your creativity, and balancing that with the stark reality that you're jumping off the ledge into the unknown on a regular basis. It is the reason that I come back day after day, even in the most trying times.
The decisions a teacher makes in those brief moments will have a tremendous impact educationally and emotionally on a child and making such an impact is both an honor and a great responsibility.
