I became a teacher because I believe that every child deserves a champion at school, a person who believes wholeheartedly in their ability to be successful. The formative middle school years should be a time when students develop strong habits of mind, healthy relationships, and a passion for learning. This is done best by surrounding students with committed teachers and fostering a safe, challenging learning environment. ASMS puts the students’ best interests as the guiding star for all decisions, and this allows the school to be a leader in middle-years education. I am so grateful to be part of this community!
