Why did you get into teaching?
I had just moved back to California and was in a bit of a career flux so when friend mentioned teaching, I thought, “Why not?” The profession grew on me and 15 years later, I’m still here. Kids need reliable and trustworthy people in their lives. I think that’s what I bring to the table. I’m also proud to be part of a school like the Met that’s trying to innovate education. Knowing that my efforts help keep the doors of this little school open day after day makes me proud.
