I love that my days are surrounded by fun, enthusiastic, honest and genuinely curious kids.  At MQSCA, I find myself growing attached to my students as we learn and grow together.  Each and every student leaves a lasting impact on me.  I get to spend my career cultivating a love of learning in my students.  There’s no denying the immense satisfaction teaching at MQS gives me.

There are so many things I love about teaching at MQSCA. Not only is it filled with amazing students but also very caring families and staff. If I had to pick one thing I like most though, I would say that I love the strong relationships I am able to build with my students and how this influences their confidence as they persevere through new challenges. It is amazing to see how much they grow in ways both big and small throughout the year and I am so glad to be a part of it!

I love the small community that allows teachers and students the opportunity to build relationships. The students also build relationships with other grades in the building through ‘buddy classes’. I appreciate the parent support and commitment to helping their students achieve. I think these relationships make MQSCA a great place to learn and teach!

I thoroughly enjoy teaching math and science lessons. Math Rocks, and science is super cool! My favorite days are when the students make connections between what they already know and something new. The light bulb clicks on and learning has occurred. Over my 16 years at MQSCA an enormous amount of learning has occurred. I am very grateful to have been a part of it, and am looking forward to more learning happening in the future.

There is a considerate, compassionate component to the environment at MQS that is supported by faith. Teaching-wise, I enjoy trying to impart a new or alternative way for students to see challenges in classroom work.
