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. I attended Burke, Smith Hale and Ruskin HS. When I came back to teaching after taking time off to stay home with children, I chose Smith Hale. This was the best desion I could have made. I love my job and my students!
In my spare time, I enjoy exploring Kansas City. I have four kids. Three one is in Elementary school and three are in Middle school! Their activities fill up most of my spare time.
