Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I have always wanted to be a teacher. I lined up my toys and taught them at home. When my parents took me out of the house, I lined up my imaginary class and took them with us!


Personal Interests

 I love spending time relaxing with my Great Dane, Ash, and my cat, Weezer. I like to travel anywhere there is a beach.
