I have always loved helping others and making people smile!  Teaching young learners to explore and love learning and growing is one of the best ways to make someone smile and feel proud!  I love seeing my students are enthusiastic and proud of themselves! I love so many things about working at Andrew Avenue, after is a great place to be!  I love the high expectations that are set for students each and every day! It is so amazing to see how much growing and learning can happen from minute to minute in each classroom! AAES is a small, loving community!  It is like a little family where everyone knows and takes care of one another!
