Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice
I chose to enter teaching after working as an editor for an engineering firm for several years after graduating with my masters degree. I joined the Kansas City Teacher Residency program and was placed at Warford Elementary in fourth grade. I hope to make a difference and instill the joy of learning into students.
In my spare time, I like to go on bike rides with my fiance, spend time with my friends, cook, read, and relax.
