Favorite Interaction with Students
I love joining students on field trips, getting to know them, and helping support them in the great outdoors.
Most Inspiring Graland Program
The Permanent Art Collection assembly is so amazing! We so rarely get to recognize students for their artistic contributions, and this really celebrates creativity and art in a special way.
Favorite Graland Moment
I loved playing hiking games with third graders on the Chief Mountain hike, getting to know students, and helping them get up and down the trail.

All of them! I am a strong believer in the power of experiential learning.
