The students that District 8 serves motivate me to be a better teacher every day. Our students come from different backgrounds, ethnicities and life experiences and they bring new and different viewpoints to our classrooms. District 8 is intentional about making every teacher, staff member and, most importantly, every student feel like they are a part of a family when they walk into our schools.

Why I Teach
When I was in High School and college, I had several amazing teachers that inspired me to be a teacher. They valued me as a person and helped me accomplish my dreams. Now, having my own classroom, my passion for teaching has never been stronger. I value the opportunity to be involved in these students’ lives. To me, teaching is more than a job or career; it’s a lifestyle. Teaching means you will pour your heart into your students and experience their highest of highs and their lowest of lows with them. It means walking alongside them and helping them to see the possibilities that are in front of them. It is truly an honor to be able to serve the students of District 8 and empower the leaders of tomorrow.
