Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I struggled as a reader until I was in 5th grade. It took one person, a school nurse that found out I could not see and needed glasses. With glasses, I noticed cracks in side-walk and leafs on trees were individual and not just one large green leaf, and the first big word I saw and read was “Splash”.  I never want anyone not seeing the wonders of words.

Personal Interests

I enjoy my quiet time, family, friends, and country music (not bluegrass).
