When I was in pre-school, I decided that education was my passion. Since then, I've worked actively to learn as much as possible and share my knowledge with others. As a first generation college student, I understand the value a quality education can have on an individual. I am grateful for the academic opportunities I've had and use this gratitude as my foundation in working with others. I'm grateful for every opportunity I have to positively impact a person's life through education.
I have experience with a variety of students! I've worked with Pre-K to college, but have my Bachelor and Master degrees are in Middle Grades (6-9) from East Carolina University. I've had the privilege of teaching, tutoring, coaching, and supervising students who are gifted, students with disabilities, and students in low income areas.
Education is my #1 passion. It is what I was put on this earth to do. I'd be grateful for the opportunity to work with you or your child. Thank you for reading my personal statement!

Outside of education, I'm passionate about mental health, my dog, and dance! I never understood the importance of mental health until college. Now, I influence my students, friends, and family by acting as a role model and offering insight when requested. My dog is a pain in the butt, but she has taught me about patience and loyalty. I love taking her to the dog park, on hikes, or training her. Finally, dance! I've been dancing for as long as I can remember. At this moment, I'm most interested in Latin styles of dance (salsa, bachata, and zouk!). I grew up training in ballet, tap, lyrical and more.
