Why are you passionate about working at NIET?

I am passionate about working for NIET because I believe each child deserves to learn each day. NIET fosters a culture of learning and creates opportunities for teachers to engage students in the learning process.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I like walking with my husband and our two-year old Goldendoodle. I enjoy swimming and bike riding. I have four grandchildren and love to facetime them and visit them when I can!
