lhhs | 10th-12th GRADE chemistry
from: Blythe, CA
"Every day I learn something from students. I've had a pretty easy life compared to what many of them are currently going through. Getting to know their stories and seeing first hand how resilient they are is inspiring to me."
I MOVED TO LAKE HAVASU BECAUSE
My best friend has lived here for many years. When I was looking for a change she encouraged me to move here.
This is my 10th total, 4th year here in Havasu.
PERSONAL INTERESTS AND/OR COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
I enjoy reading, traveling, live music and painting (even though I'm not that good at it).
I WAS INSPIRED TO BE A TEACHER BECAUSE
I became a teacher to inspire today's youth to take more pride in being educated. I also want to share my passion for chemistry. Even if they don't like chemistry, it is my goal for students to walk away from my class feeling like they overcame something challenging and for them to have grown and learned in the process.
