"I love to be with students because it's something new every day. Even if what we're doing is not new for me, it's new for the students and I love the resulting excitement. I love to see the world through the eyes of my students. I am excited about my third year of mentoring because I truly enjoy getting to new places and being in classrooms with other teachers. New teachers bring such hope and excitement with them I'm happy to help them achieve the classroom they always dreamed of. It's rewarding to know the students in these rooms will have the very best education their teacher can give."
