What I love most about WMS is the great people that I get to work with on my various teams! We go above and beyond to do what is best for kids and to be a great support system to each other as well. I am thankful to come to work each day with such great kids and such great co-workers!

This is my 26th year teaching at Washington Middle School. My favorite part of my job is getting to know my students. I truly appreciate our district's focus on building relationships and providing the best possible education to our students!

I absolutely love working at District 52! The staff here is the most collaborative group of people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Everyone supports one another personally and professionally; it is an inspiring environment to work in. Teaching STEM brings me so much joy. I wish I had the opportunity to take this class when I was younger. It's incredible to be a part of preparing students for jobs that haven't even been created yet. We are nurturing dynamic learners who are adept at problem-solving. The skills they gain will undoubtedly benefit them in various aspects of their future.
