4. What was your biggest challenge during school?

Math – however, I did have AMAZING teachers!

5. What do you know now that you wish your younger self had known?

I wish I would’ve taken advantage of more opportunities and tried more things. I also wish I would’ve put a little more effort into challenging courses and learning study techniques because the first year of college was ROUGH!

6. What advice would you give to students in school now?

Be grateful for everything, try new things and put yourself out there, work hard in everything, and be kind to EVERYONE – you never know who you will encounter in the future who can either be an ally or enemy in your life!

7. Name one person who changed your life for the better during school and how they did it.

Gary Glover – he was my gymnastics coach and teacher, but as I became an adult so much more than that! He guided me emotionally, physically and spiritually and mentored me in coaching and teaching!

8. If you could wave a magic wand and change something about your school years, what would it be?

I really wouldn’t change much except I wish I wouldn’t have been so shy and would’ve tried new things.

9. How did school prepare you for what you are doing now?

As a teacher, school prepared me to like school! Also, the teachers inspired me to want to make a difference in the lives of others and give back!

10. What do you hope to accomplish in the future?

I am actually leaving the world of public education and transitioning into a second career in real estate at the end of this school year! In this new adventure, I look forward to impacting people in a new positive way!
