With a fear of sounding too cliché, this is my dream job! I have worked with young children, youth and their families for many years and find myself drawn to, and advocating for the ones who pull on our heart strings.

I have come to learn that the defining component of my leadership philosophy, and what I would have referred to as my moral and ethical responsibility in the past, is in fact our obligation to connect with the babes we teach. I have watched many professionals shy away from the hurt our students bring to school with them each day and I am excited to be part of the systematic change in supporting FVSD employees to do better. Brené Brown shares the following quote in Dare to Lead as being one of the greatest gifts; "…don’t pretend not to see hurt. Look people in the eye even when their pain is overwhelming."  

Although I may be pretty high up on the naïveté meter, I know my life experiences have created the person I am today. As Martin Brokenleg stated so eloquently; "you are who you are out of your own woundedness".  I can proudly say that I am in a place in my life now where I no longer am ashamed, or hide my story, but wear it as a badge of honor.
