As a young girl I always dreamed about becoming a teacher because my teachers were able to make learning so much fun. My teachers always took the time to help me understand what was being taught, fostered within me a desire to learn, and always challenge myself. I wanted to share those same experiences with others. My love of teaching and learning continues to motivate me to become a better teacher and to help nurture the value of life-long learning in others. Even though my teaching career did not originate at Stone, I feel honored to be apart of the Stone family.
