What is your favorite thing about being a teacher?
As cliche as it sounds, I think watching a student have an "aha!" moment is the best. A close second is watching them graduate and start their next chapter in life.
What is your favorite thing about working at Study Help?
Study Help allows me to work one to one with a student. We focus on homework, we brush up on basics, and maybe practice a skill that is upcoming in a future class. There is no pressure; it is all about learning, making a mistake or two, having a laugh, and learning some more. I learn from my students, and they honor me by laughing at my corny teacher jokes.
What is something interesting or fun that your students don't know about you?
I love airplanes. I used to go to air shows as a kid and I still get excited when planes fly over the 405 freeway in Los Angeles. My family teases me. They laugh and point, "Look mom! It's an airplane!"
