Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
I chose education beacuse I love working with children and I believe I can make a difference in their lives by providing a nurturing environment and a high quality education .
I enjoy traveling, writing poetry and public speaking speeches for children, and spending time with family and friends (especially my grandchildren).
