Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I believe a quality education is the key to a person’s success, both professionally and personally.  Also, all students crave to learn, if you are willing to dedicate yourself to the profession of teaching students, regardless to economic status, ethnicity and character.

 

Personal Interests

In my spare time, I enjoy watching the Kansas City Chiefs, attending family gatherings and loving my grandchildren.
