What is your proudest accomplishment?
When my students in my 2021 summer reading program recited their sight words in front of an audience and did not miss a word! When one of the students started and then stopped, the other third graders yelled “You Can Do It”!

What is something most people don’t know about you?
That I want to be a legend in the field of helping my community! I want to go to my grave empty!
