Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

After working in the mental health field, I decided that education is the key to a person’s success, and I felt that I could make a difference in the field of education as a teacher.


Personal Interests

I enjoy spending my free time with friends and family, and my pets (2 cats.)  I also enjoy exercise and running.
