Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
I chose a career in education because I have always been drawn to jobs that involve working with children. I also feel every child is special, deserving of an education and has the ability to be successful. It is a great honor for me, as an educator, to have the opportunity to work with children daily and see them grow as individuals.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, my husband Eric and my daughter Lila. I have an amazing Mom and Dad, two loving older sisters, two great brother-in-laws, a darling nephew, a sweet niece and wonderful in-laws. Family dinners are a long standing tradition in my parents’ home. I also enjoy watching and attending all types of sporting events (KU, KSU, Royals, Rangers and Chiefs), gardening, cooking and attending Jazzercise classes (yes, they still exist)! Additionally, I believe it is important to give back to the community as a volunteer.
