Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

Growing up, I always had teachers that were supportive and encouraging, even in my struggles as a young adult. With all of my teachers throughout grade school and into high school, I wanted to be able to give back to my future students as my teachers did for me. I always knew I wanted to work with kids and I felt that being a teacher would be the best way to do so. 


Personal Interests

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have a miniature dachshund, Sadie, who is energetic and loving. Also, I love Fall with the colorful leaves and cold weather.
