To me, being a Brave means pursuing excellence in all I do. I love being in a learning environment where I am required to bring my "A-game" every day. Students ask such great questions and my colleagues are top-notch. Our administration expects the best and equips us with the resources we need. This is everything I could ever want in terms of a work environment!

The #IHPromise means commitment. The district is 100 percent committed to identify top values, priorities and goals, and then act in accordance with those values at every level. Whether it is funding to deliver on a priority or examining our current procedures, we are in a state of continuous improvement, which is the same thing we ask of our students!

The best moment in any day is when a student says something about what we are learning that shows engagement. I love comments like, "Wow, I had no idea ... " Then I know I am on the right track with the way I am presenting the material. Those are great moments!
