Q: How long have you been at Gulliver Prep? What do you love most about our school? 

A: I have been at Gulliver Prep for 21 years. I love the family atmosphere.

Q: What is one thing people may not know about you? 

A: I write poetry. I generally write poetry about things that have happened to me. I got into writing because I found that it was a great outlet to express myself. 

Q: How do you keep your Middle School students engaged and interested in learning?

A: I like to incorporate humor into my lessons. I use my humor in several different ways. I find that it helps to keep the students relaxed, especially when it is something that they are not confident in doing.

Q: What life lessons can a student learn from the game of basketball?

A: To never give up. That even when it doesn’t look like you are going to win, there is always a chance.

Q: As we are approaching the end of the school year, what goals do you set out for yourself and are excited to accomplish?

A: I want to finish the year off strong. My goal is to make sure that my students will take away at least one thing that they have learned that they can use later in life.
