I love getting to know my students in the classroom through discussions and hearing how their outside-HBR lives influence who they are and the ideas they have. Watching them support their peers in the classroom and on the athletic fields also gives me a glimpse into their personalities too!

I enjoy seeing students grow and develop into future leaders. It's humbling to see and watch the impact that agricultural education/FFA has upon a student’s life.

I look forward to getting to know the students of Hinckley-Big Rock High School and supporting them in every way I can. I particularly enjoy greeting them outside in the morning and recognizing familiar faces in the hallways, grateful when we can strike up a conversation together.

The students (and everyone here in HBR) have been extremely welcoming and accepting of me into their close-knit community. I can’t wait to see what the school year brings us!

I went from period to period on the first day thoroughly enjoying the friendly high school students. I feel like Little Orphan Annie looking around Daddy Warbucks’ mansion singing, "I think I'm gonna like it here!"

Every day the students make me laugh, push me to be better, and reaffirm to me that I made the right decision coming to HBR. The community has made a strong first impression on me, and I look forward to the rest of the year and what we can accomplish together. Go Royals!
