On a professional note


Why I love teaching:
I have always believed that teaching is a calling. When I felt God tugging on my heart to teach, I knew I had better listen. I love teaching because I know I am where God wants me to be, which is serving these great students and working alongside some of the greatest people I have ever met. I also love the fact that no two days are the same. It keeps me on my toes.
