Why did you choose education as a profession? What do you like about it?

I initially started college with a dental hygiene focus. While teaching Vacation Bible School during the summers, I quickly realized I had a passion for teaching. I love making connections with children and helping them learn. That’s when I knew teaching was my passion, so I changed my major and headed in the direction of education. As challenging as it can be, there are also so many rewards. One of the best parts of teaching is when you see the ‘light bulb’ come on and everything clicks. It makes all the hard work totally worth it.”
