Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
Throughout my career in education, I have enjoyed the opportunity to strive to make a positive impact with all the students and athletes that I have worked with in my career. It has always been my goal to provide all students with knowledge, strategies, goal setting techniques, and inspiration that they can apply to their lives to help them reach their maximum potential in all areas of their life.
I enjoy spending time with my family and I am a sports fan of football, basketball, and baseball teams.
