“I believe that learning is a collaborative process. Every student has the potential to not only learn but to teach. There is always room for gaining new knowledge. The most enjoyable aspect of teaching is that moment where everything clicks. I aim to reach that moment for every student by encouraging communication and questions. I strive to help students reach their full potential.”
Her biggest stress reliever and favorite activity is running outdoors. She enjoys pretty much any sport or active activity.
