This I Believe

I give students the opportunity to ask questions, to explore, to be curious and to try to find answers to their questions as well as to be critical and innovative thinkers. I want to instill a love of learning in our students that will last throughout their lives.

Fun Facts

A Teacher Who Inspired Me: Mr. Moren who was my junior high school science teacher. He had many hands-on activities and made science fun and interesting. He was dedicated to student success and had a passion for education and science.

A Trinity Student Is… curious, hard-working, inquisitive, cooperative.

I Teach Because… I love to watch students have that “aha!” moment when they discover something new or see something old in a new way. I remember Mr. Moren, my junior high science teacher, who was a great inspiration and I wanted to pass on my interest in science to students.

Something I am Passionate About Outside of Education is… I love to keep learning. I am constantly taking classes to learn more. I also like to swim and read.

Favorite Spot on Campus: The nature path. This small area has some amazing trees in it and it gives me a sense of nature.
