That moment when you’ve been teaching the children something and the light bulb comes on! They really get it! At that moment, you know why you do what you do, and why you are so passionate about your position.” says Mrs. Cubbage. Her favorite meal? – a pizza with a fresh garden salad, followed by chocolate almond ice cream.
