What was one of your favorite memories at U-46? A favorite memory at U-46 was accompanying a colleague downtown Chicago on a field trip to the Goethe-Institut and Christkindlmarket.

What was the favorite part of your job? My favorite part of my job was imparting not only knowledge to my students, but also life lessons along the way and encouraging them to stretch their minds and reach for heights they might not otherwise have thought possible to attain.

What do you enjoy doing outside your profession? I love traveling, taking photos with my camera, light reading, cooking and baking.
