Center Grove High School 2024 Teacher of the Year

12 Years of Teaching; 12 Years at Center Grove 



To me, teaching is important because students need as many people as possible pushing them to be their best, cheering for them when they succeed and helping them through their struggles. As a special education teacher, I need to make modifications: pushing them to be their best looks different for every student, successes may seem small to some but are monumental to the student, and struggles are plentiful but not excuses. I believe each of my students can become contributing members of society and live full, happy lives. So there’s no more important job than helping someone realize and accomplish that.
