Why I Love Teaching:
I have fun and enjoy being with the students, I learn everyday from teaching. It’s rewarding being able to help kids grow and improve their talent and skills. I have worked hard to be where I am, and I’m happy to make a difference in students lives.
My Other Interests:
Performing and being on stage out in the community, having a small business that I run myself, collecting damaged vinyls and painting on them to repurpose them, making jewelry out of real flowers that I pick, being a full time college student and gaining experience daily with children of all ages and needs throughout different schools, traveling abroad to different countries.
