What was your biggest a-ha moment as a teacher or school administrator?
A very humbling moment when I realized how much of an impact teachers can have on a student. One of my students wrote me a note that said, “Thank you for believing in me, when I was unable to believe in myself.”
Who was the most influential teacher/coach/instructor when you were growing up? What was it about him/her that impacted you?
Mr. Hardesty (high school math teacher) His love of math and teaching was evident every single day.
What is your fondest Pisgah memory?
On an eighth grade mission trip to the homeless shelter in Gainesville, Georgia. I got to see a different side to the students and I was very impressed by how willing they were to help others who were less fortunate. I also loved hiking to the top of the mountain with my colleague Mrs. Diaz and some of the students at Sharptop on our annual all school retreat.
