Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
Academia has been such a positive part of my life and all of my best mentors were teachers and coaches. I hope to be this same positive influence on my students. I also feel that educators have so many more responsibilities than just teaching content itself…I want my students to learn responsibility, commitment, pride and respect, both for themselves and others.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, reading, movies and spending time outdoors with my family.
