Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

Growing up in the inner city of Kansas City, MO and being the youngest child, I felt that I was obligated to pass it forward and help others to be the very best that they can be.  I believed that everyone had greatness inside of them and it was my responsibility to help them discover it.  Also, my mother was an educator and all of her sisters were educators.  I can truly say that it was in my DNA and my destiny to be an educator as well.


Personal Interests

I love to travel.  It is my desire to travel the world and see all of the beautiful wonders!
