I enjoy trail running, yoga, skiing, mountain biking, hanging out with my family and playing with my young boys (Cormac-5, Brennan-3)
I want to support students in having the same access to classroom work/materials and social interactions as their peers. Being able to express your thoughts, socialize with peers, engage in classroom activities and collaborate in groups are life skills that students need to flourish. Helping students facilitate these abilities is imperative and my goal on a daily basis. Relationships and connections are central to living a fulfilled, joyful life with communication being central to it.
I AM CURRENTLY WORKING ON GETTING BETTER AT: work/life/health balance, husband time and my relationships with my family, brushing up on my piano skills, finishing up my MA+ 60 certification, taking in all the moments with my young sons (and not feeling exhausted all the time!)
