Why did you choose to become a teacher?
I chose to become a teacher when I was little. I just loved working with kids, helping them learn new things and learning from them, and still do 🙂
Golden Key National Honor Society, Kappa Delta Phi, and graduated with both my BAE and MAE Summa Cum Laude. My greatest accomplishment however, is my four children!!
