Special Education Teacher
I choose the field of education because of the great teachers that I had when I was younger. I enjoy teaching reading to students that are struggling. The excitement that builds when they start understanding and breaking the code of reading is my favorite part. Every day I get the chance to help a child feel better about reading and let them see that with hard work, the skills will come. I feel very lucky to be working at Jordan Elementary School because of the staff, students, and parents.
