What do you think about winning $10,000?

“I think it’s pretty amazing! In education when you win an award, it’s usually just a plaque.”

 

What did you win this award for?

“The Barrett Family Foundation awards 12 teachers in both math and science for creating an environment in their classrooms that is exciting and fun for the students so they hopefully choose a career in math or science one day.”

 

Will you still teach even though you’re rich?

“Well, I wouldn’t say I was rich….LOL! And yes, I plan to continue teaching for many years to come.”

 

How are you going to spend the $10,000?

“My husband and I are going to use some of the money for upkeep on our house and the rest will go into our children’s college funds.”
