Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
I get joy when a child's face lights up when they really understand!  I want for the children that enter my classrom  to be taught the way I would teach my own children. I want every child to reach their greatest potential, just like I would want for my own biological children.
 
Personal Interest
In my spare time, I enjoy Old School Music, gardening and fishing. I love a good mystery or comedy movie. I am an avid Chiefs and Royals Fan from way back!
