The reason I decided to get into education is I enjoy the process of development. It is an amazing process to watch a student learn and grow both academically and personally, and to know that you had a part in that. The fact that I can be a positive role model and make an impact on a child's life is very rewarding for me. Helping someone set and achieve goals is something that I truly enjoy and I know it is something that will never get old.

Things I like to do in my spare time include playing and watching football and basketball, spending time outside at the beach during the summer and spending time with friends and family.
What is your teaching philosophy?
The way I help students stay motivated is through seeing the light at the end of the tunnel so of speak. I help them understand the purpose and reasoning behind the process and how it can benefit them in the long run. I try to relate it to them personally.
