Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice: Being an educator at Ruskin High School is a motivational part of my life. Every day, students remind me that we teach each other. The process of learning who students are and how they continually offer fresh outlooks on life, keeps me focused how important they are.  I hope to return the favor by emparting something valuable students will choose to take with them as they continue their lives.
