How long you have been at Ravenscroft? I came to Ravenscroft in the fall of 2006 - so this is my 12th year!
What do you love about your job? I am very lucky in that the students I teach and the colleagues I work with all appreciate the special environment we have at Ravenscroft. Because of that, there is a positive vibe on campus. I love that our students want to be challenged and meet those challenges with a growth-mindset. It makes coming to work each day a pleasure.
What is your favorite Ravenscroft moment? My favorite moments are all the "firsts" that I've witnessed in the years I have been at Ravenscroft. The first time our field hockey team beat DA. The first time we played a girl's lacrosse game on campus. The first time a student-athlete went on to play field hockey or lacrosse in college. However, I am extremely blessed because I also get to see "firsts" every single day. The first time a student hits a pitched ball. The first time a student does a pull-up after weeks of trying. The first time a student breaks an 8-minute mile or serves a volleyball over the net. Seeing those "firsts" happen will always be my favorite moments.
What is something people may not know about you? I have played ice hockey since I was four years old. I played in college (as well as field hockey and lacrosse) and I still enjoy playing on a weekly basis. I love watching the Hurricanes play!
