Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I chose education as my career of choice because I am passionate about providing and guarding a safe place for students; to be served, loved, supported, and held accountable for learning rigourous and racially equitable instruction. 


Personal Interests

Most of all, I enjoy all aspects of being a life-long learner - There is no greater adventure than a rigorous learning expedition! My personal interests include celebrations with family, travel, DIY projects, gardening & photography.
