As I was going to University to get my teaching certificate, I worked as a substitute teacher. Occasionally I would sub at Tuacahn. Those were always my favorite days. There was an energy at the school that I loved. The class sizes were smaller and the students were kind, positive and hard working. My dream job was to be a Tuacahn teacher and, to my amazement, that dream came true! Now that I’m here it’s even better than I could have imagined. What I love best is the way teachers and students are always working to improve. We seek feedback, even when it can be hard to hear, because we want to be the best we can be. We believe in collaboration. Working together toward a goal is challenging, but so rewarding. I love watching students lean into the hard work and grow; I love that this school challenges me to do the same.
