I love it when students finally understand a topic and that proverbial 'light bulb' comes on as they shine through the work; those are great moments. My career goal is to be an elementary school teacher. I was inspired by my 5th grade teacher because he left a great image of how a thoughtful, engaging, and smart man can teach. During my pursuit in education, I have committed +1500 hours to math tutoring when I was Lead Instructor for a local tutoring center. I also have completed my Masters program in Education - Curriculum and Instruction. My time math tutoring and learning in grad school has enriched, enhanced, and encouraged my passion in being an educator. Also, I have completed the CBEST, LiveScan Fingerprinting, and TB test (negative result).
