In a word, kids. I feel super lucky to be put in a position where my job is to have a positive impact on young people.  Everything I do in my classroom stems from an overarching goal of both loving and supporting kids, as well as challenging them.  I honestly don't think I could do anything else but teach!

What I like most about my school: 

Lincoln is a family.  I'm continually inspired and impressed by how both the staff and students have such a strong sense of community and cooperation.  For the first day I walked into Lincoln as a substitute teacher three years ago, I felt immediately like I had found a home.  I can't express how lucky I feel like I am to have found this school!
