WHAT MOTIVATED YOUR CAREER IN EDUCATION?
“Overall, impacting my students is why I became an educator. I continue to expand in my education to make sure I am doing my best for each and every one of my students. I work long hours to make sure my lessons are engaging and memorable to ensure my students are achieving to their highest potential.”
WHAT MESSAGE ABOUT PUBLIC EDUCATION DO YOU WANT SHARE?
“We need to push ourselves as public educators to change the achievement gap between socioeconomic classes for the sake of our future generations. It is no fault of the students’ who have faced hardships in their life. Each student deserves the same chance to succeed no matter who they are, where they are from, or what educational background their parents have.“
