Paraprofessional, Bridgedale Elementary School

If you could pass on any wisdom to your students, what would it be?

  • If I could pass on any wisdom, it would be to never give up. Always try your best and if you fail, you can always move forward and succeed later. 

What is the best thing about working at your school?

  • The best thing about working at my school is the diverse community we have here. We have a high ESL population and they teach me a lot and it’s fun learning with them. 

What is your favorite sport to watch or play?

  • My favorite sport to watch is football. I’m a huge football fan, I even play fantasy football and my favorite team is the Panthers. 

Have you ever completed anything on your bucket list?

  • Yes, I have, I’m obsessed with Kangaroos and one of my goals in life was to hold a kangaroo. I held a kangaroo, my mother-in-law scheduled a photoshoot where I got to hold one and play with them. It was one of the best days of my life. 

Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

  • I am a huge introvert. You will not be able to tell by me working here but when I leave campus I don’t want to do anything and I just keep to myself.
