What would students be surprised to find out about you?

Something that students are usually surprised by is that I speak three languages and was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

 

What is your favorite book, movie, and band/performer?

I have so many books that I love. One of my favorite books that I have read recently is "Untamed" by Glennon Doyle. I also have so many favorite movies, but one of my favorites is "The Goonies"! One of my favorite performers is P!nk.

 

What constitutes a “good day” at school for you?

A day I get to have fun with my colleagues and students through hands-on, engaging collaborations filled with good conversations, discussions, learning and projects.

 

How did your own school experience influence your teaching career?

I decided to become a teacher after having Ms. Aman, my second grade teacher in Germany. She taught me the influence a great and caring educator can have on a child’s/student’s life.

 

What is the single most important thing you hope to impart to your students?

To love learning but be kind and empathetic to those who learn with you and share your community.
