"What made you decide to become a teacher?"
"A little two-year-old girl taking my hand, walked me over to her book corner and asked me to read her a story, and I wasn't even an employee yet at Spring Garden. I guess I always wanted to see what children could bring out into the world, and when I started working with Spring Garden, I started at the young pre-toddler, and went to school age, and I just loved their interest and curiosity about everything, and I loved to have them share their ideas and their stories; just their excitement, because when they get excited, I get excited. And that helps me build a strong educational program with children actually learning and enjoying. I have a story for you: I had a boy who I could not get out of block corner; all he did was play in block corner. He graduated with a degree in engineering from the University of Florida. One of his first projects was rebuilding the World Trade Center. When the Towers crashed, he helped build the Freedom Tower.
