Why I love being a Wildcat: 

I love being an Arkansas Wildcat because I love to ROAR!  Building a strong character foundation within children is what I strive to do each day.  Building a safe community within our classroom is essential to our well-being and positive growth so we are each able to achieve.  I believe that teaching children how to ROAR (Role Model, Ownership, Attitude, Respectful) are skills that they will continue to build on during their time here at Arkansas.  Our “I can do it” attitude gets us all started in the right direction each day, ready to handle anything that may come our way! 

Things that motivate you, excite you about learning:

My personal faith motivates me every day.  Learning is my lifelong passion.  I am motivated to learn new things throughout my life so that I’m able to be the best possible version of myself.
