Why did you decide to become a teacher? My dad was a teacher for 30 years.  I had several jobs that were "sort of" like teaching, but I never thought I was a teacher.  Once I decided to teach, I realized it is exactly where I was meant to be.

What do you like most about teaching? My favorite part about teaching is having fun with the kids and seeing the "aha" moments as they uncover new and different ways of thinking and solving problems.

What hobbies do you enjoy in your free time? I enjoy relaxing with my friends and family outdoors, cooking, watching my kids play sports, etc.
