Why I Chose Education As My Career Choice:
I believe communication is the key to a person's success, both professionally and personally, and that a good foundation in reading and language starts at an early age. By working in the school setting, I'm able to instruct students in those necessary communication skills.
In my spare time, I enjoy exploring Kansas City. The Nelson Atkins Museum, City Market, and Crossroads Art District are some of my favorite spots in the city. I also enjoy reading, running, yoga, swimming, drawing, making jewelry, baking, listening to music, and spending time with my family.
