Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
As a high school student, teaching was never on my radar. My interest was in Psychology only because of a teacher who made me love understanding human behavior. In college I needed a part-time job, so I applied to be a substitute teacher. I realized how much I could affect change in students; therefore, I became a teacher. For over 20 years, students have gotten on my nerves, entertained me, and touched my heart. Hopefully, I have become that teacher who inspires.
In my spare time I like to hang out with my two children, read, watch prime time TV, and talk to my friends.
