Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

In my eyes, education is the key to unlocking the world and children deserve the opportunity to thrive with learning. I teach to inspire students to reach their fullest potential, to find their roles in the world, and to believe in themselves. Students should learn to fail, prevail, and succeed, and my goal as an educator is to help children overcome these challenges and push themselves further.


Personal Interests

I enjoy reading, traveling, spending time with my family and friends, cooking, listening to music, and being outdoors!
