Previous position: Math teacher

How I spend my free time: Spending time with family is No. 1. I love to read, watch sports and spend any time I can at the beach.

Teacher who inspired me: Both my mother and grandmother were wonderful teachers. They had such unique and fun ways of reaching all students. They truly inspired me and gave me great ideas to use in my classroom. They not only were concerned with student learning, they cared about the whole person.

Funniest classroom moment: Every day that I come to school is a fun day. Over the years, there have been many times when there were funny things happening. One thing that I can remember is asking the students to learn a difficult concept that required some serious higher-level thinking skills. I asked the students to stand on their chairs while learning and trying to reach those "higher" level skills. Right after we started, the principal came in and asked what in the world we were doing. The students were really concerned that they would be reprimanded. What I remember the most is the looks on their faces.

As an administrator, my goal for students is: As an educator, I want our students to be successful in all aspects of their lives. My goal is to have our teachers/staff meet our students where they are spiritually, academically, emotionally and socially, so that the students can move forward in these areas to meet their individual potentials. I want our students to be prepared for whatever life has in store for them after high school in the ever-changing 21st century world. I feel that there is so much more to each student than just his or her academics.

If I weren't an educator, I'd be: I would be an engineer. I love working with math and solving problems that an engineer would be solving.

You might not know: My great-uncle was the governor of Maryland and a U.S. senator. As a result, I also love history.
