I come from a family that highly values education. Both of my parents have graduate degrees, and both of them are teachers. Coming from that background, and being a child who always enjoyed learning, I found it only natural that I wanted to become a teacher myself. There is nothing like the kind of impact a good teacher can make on the course of your life. For that reason, I love being involved in education and having the chance to help students learn.
I love having the chance to meet together with students trying to better their lives and their minds, and to provide them with assistance on their way. I find it incredibly rewarding, and I am regularly surprised by the things I learn from my students.
