“My dad is a pastor, and I have been teaching Sunday School and Wednesday night youth groups since I was in highschool. Working with children has always been one of my passions,” Tobergte said.

Her favorite part about being a teacher is being responsible for making an imprint on the lives of her students.

“I love knowing I can make a difference in so many lives, and that so many of them can also make a difference in my life!” Tobergte said.

A few positives from this past year was being able to teach face-to-face as opposed to virtual.
