Tell us about one way in which Breakthrough shaped your path?
Breakthrough gave me the opportunity to grow into an educator! It got me into the classroom and taught me how to love the profession!

How do you carry Breakthrough spirit with you today?
I sing good morning to my students every day (which despite their complaints I know deep, deep down they love) and do my best to bring fun and celebration into the classroom. Breakthrough showed me how fun learning can be and I try to pass on that experience to my students every day.

Shower of praise — who was a Breakthrough teacher or student who shaped your path and how?
Jennie McDonald Brown is the BLUEPRINT. She exemplifies strong leadership with her consistency, dedication to the students and overwhelming love. She is everything an educational leader should be and knowing her has given me a standard to strive to.
