What is your favorite thing about teaching?

Learning about life! -- with my students and from their perspectives.

Please describe anything unique or interesting in your background that is relevant to the job.

I love and respect nature, so I tried to teach students to reduce lunch litter and recycle class items. Once, when participating in CA's Coastal Clean-up at Ocean Beach, some surfers came up to the students and thanked them. That made an impression on all of us.

Who/what inspired you to become a teacher?

My late husband.

What is the best advice you have ever heard or received?

"Be fair, firm and friendly."

"I am happiest when..."

Connecting emotionally with people, big or small.
