“I wanted to be a great teacher, like my father. I knew education was the route for me…I believe one of my greatest contributions as a teacher has been advocating for the needs of our culturally and linguistically diverse students within the district.”
WHAT MESSAGE ABOUT PUBLIC EDUCATION DO YOU WANT SHARE?
“The whole world is represented in KCPS—we have students born in Asia, Africa, North and South America, and students born just down the street. Our students come
from many nations, but they have one home, KCPS. The hardworking, passionate, and energetic teachers in the district need only to picture one of their students faces in their minds, to remind them what they work for.”
