Why did you choose teaching as a career?
I have always enjoyed spending time with children. I also enjoy practical activities such as cooking and sewing and I find it exciting to pass on this enthusiasm to my students.
Who inspires you and why?
Jesus is the one who inspires me the most. It is only by knowing Jesus that I can know how I should lead my life.
What is the most rewarding thing about your role?
The practical cooking and sewing classes allow for a more relaxed atmosphere where students often feel comfortable to open up about their lives, thoughts and feelings. It is a privilege to share these conversations with my students.
What are you looking forward to?
I look forward to seeing the ‘aha!’ moments that students have when the things that they are learning fall into place.
When you’re not teaching, what do you do in your downtime? Do you have interests or hobbies?
I love to sew. I really enjoy beginning with a 2-dimensional piece of fabric and ending up with a 3 dimensional garment that suits its purpose.
I also enjoy walking, hiking and reading.
What book are you reading, or what would we find on your podcast list? What do you love to learn about?
I enjoy reading biographies. It fascinates me to learn how other people lived and what they thought and felt.
The book I read most is the Bible. It always provides me with strength, happiness and comfort.
