When did you decide to be a teacher? Was there something in particular that inspired you?
I decided to become a teacher kind of on a whim! I never ever thought that I would be able to do it, especially after seeing how hard it was for my mother, but after college I found myself wondering what to do next. I intended to go to graduate school, but nothing seemed to really hold my interest enough to want to study it in depth. Then I remembered the Montessori school that I had worked in over the summers during college and how impressed I was with the students, families, and staff there. Everyone was so dedicated to this way of learning and the children were so happy to be at school every day. So, I contacted the training program in Holly Springs and jumped right in. I felt like I had finally found something that suited me.
