Why I chose education as my career:
I believe there are only two things that cannot be taken from you- your education and your character. As a teacher I get to help create that foundation for students. I believe all children have the ability to learn, and I want to be part of those students reaching their full potential. I believe the most important things we do in life, is what we do for others; therefore I consider teaching my vocation.

Personal Interests:
I enjoy spending time with my family, seeing the sights, and watching film.
