What kind of things do you like to do outside of school?

I am also the boys wrestling coach, and an assistant football coach.

Give us an idea of your education passion, can you tell us something of why you chose education…

I am starting my 5th year at Waltrip.  I have a passion for linking the lesson with real world understanding of our students.  For example, the year end project for the Montessori program is Shark Tank.  The students must exhibit a product, and present this to a panel.
