My family & I painted rocks we had found and placed them throughout our yard when they were finished. What is your favorite outside activity? Our family loves to camp, fish and have water fights in the backyard during the summer months. Why did you decide to work at WMS? To conquer my fear of being a middle school teacher. And now, I love it!! If you could be any cartoon character who would you choose and why? Ariel-she is my favorite Disney princess. She is rebellious and adventurous.

What is your favorite outside activity? Hiking in Makoshika, and family kickball games. Why did you decide to work at WMS? I decided to work for WMS because I like to cook and I could see my kids while in school. If you could be any cartoon character who would you choose and why? I would be Bell from beauty and the beast. I would be her because she is kind and happy being herself caring, and willing to trade places with her father. Also she gets to spend all day in that amazing library! What is your favorite quote? You never know what light you might spark in others, just through your kindness and your example.
