Do the best to your ability in everything you do.
Why did you choose your profession?
A family member worked with students with disabilities when I was in high school. She always talked about her job and how much she enjoyed working with the students. So, I chose special education as my major but did not know how much I really would like it until I did my student teaching. I love what I do.

Room 183. It is located down the hallway on your way to Brooklyn Junior.
I enjoy making quilts, working on scrapbooks, bowling, and working outdoors in the garden.

I hope I win the lottery so I wouldn’t have to find another job, but if I had to,I would want to be a personal shopper. I think it would be fun to shop for other people.
