My desire of wanting to be a teacher evolved when I was in 2nd Grade and that passion stayed consistent as I entered Middle School as well as High School. Throughout college, my reason for becoming a teacher was to see ah-ha moments in students, but after my first year of teaching, I‘ve come to enjoy watching children be curious about the world and growing as they learn.
Favorite verse: Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for what he has done. Phillipians 4:6
