1. What do you teach at ILS/what is your role at ILS?

I assist in the Kindergarten classroom and teach lower school Latin.

2. What does classical education mean to you?

I am a major believer in Classical education. I am the proud product of a Classical Liberal Arts college, and if I have children they will all be classically educated.

3. What is your favorite thing about ILS?

My favorite thing about ILS is the amazing students and their families.

4. Who was one teacher who inspired you?

I had a professor in undergrad named Dr. Kucks who truly lived out his faith and genuinely cared for his students. During finals, I had pulled an all-nighter and accidentally fell asleep in his class the next day. Rather than being reprimanded, I awakened to find a mug of steaming hot coffee placed before me. While I had dozed, Dr. Kucks had made a fresh pot of coffee in his office and brought me a mug of it. I think I cried because I was so touched by the gesture.

5. What is your favorite book? (What book has most inspired you?)

My favorite book is Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. No other piece of literature so strongly conveyed the message of redemption for such an undeserving character. It's a beautiful reminder of the grace God has bestowed upon me.

6. Please share one thing families wouldn't already know about you.

I love to dance. Any kind of dance. I have done ballet, Irish dance, musical theater jazz, swing, salsa, Argentine tango, waltz, foxtrot, hip hop, bollywood... there isn't really any kind of dance I would not do.
