Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I love children and watching them learn.  I have always had a special place in my heart for kids that have special needs every since my family became a foster family when I was little.  My family took in babies or children that had many different needs and it really touched me.  It was then that I decided that I wanted to make a difference in their lives as well.  I couldn't imagine doing anything else.  It is truly a pleasure working each day with children, influencing their lives and guiding their learning.

Personal Interests

I enjoy riding horses, traveling, reading, and spending time with my family and friends.
