What drew you to working education?
My internship working in the Fairview Hospital School-Based Health Center drew me to working in education. The center was located in the Louis Agassiz Elementary School. I was able to provide mental health services to kids in the school, as well as teach character education classes to several classrooms. The center also had a nurse who I would assist with various health initiatives within the school.
What is your favorite thing about our school?
I love seeing kids being excited about learning. Also, I enjoy seeing kids form positive relationships with our Learning Partners.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
I love to travel, bowl, and swim!
