Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I believe that all students can learn and should be given the opportunity to succeed.  We need our students to be educated so that they can be productive members of society.  I feel as a teacher it is my duty and priviledge to help students achieve their dreams.  This learning does not always come from a traditional school setting.  As a results, I am a firm believer in project-based learning as a real-world applicable way of learning.  I believe in high expectations for all students and challenging students to meet their fullest potential.


Personal Interests

I enjoy anything at church, reading, genealogy, history and online gaming.  I also like to spend time with my family and friends.
