What do you enjoy most about working with students? The relationships built with students are so rewarding. I have already had so many past students come back to visit - it's the best! 

What do you enjoy about being part of Faribault Public Schools? It truly is a family. I have been so honored to be giving back to the school that helped make me who I am. Once a Falcon, always a Falcon!
