Favorite Interaction with Students
I've really enjoyed co-sponsoring the Yearbook Club; it's been fun to work with the kids on this project.

Most Inspiring Graland Program
I look forward to graduation when eighth graders are recognized for their time here at Graland.

Favorite Graland Moment
My favorite moment is the first day of school and seeing how excited the kids are to see their friends and teachers after the long summer break. Everything is shiny and new and spirits are high.

Professional Passion
I love working with middle school students. They are sweet and innocent, have great senses of humor and push boundaries a little, all while still wanting to please the adults in their lives.

Lifelong Learner
Being new to Graland, I have been trying to soak up as much Graland knowledge as possible so I can be my best as an employee and colleague.

Why I Work at Graland
I love how supportive and genuine the faculty and staff are at Graland.
