Personal Statement
One of the best aspects of being a teacher and instructional coach at ND, is the opportunity I have to support the critical thinking and community building of students and teachers. Everyday I experience the eagerness of students to learn and be challenged. I have been the teacher at ND for 25 years, and the positive energy from the students is evident both inside and outside the classroom!
