Why did you choose education as a profession?: “I chose education as my profession because I always loved learning, whether it be for my extracurricular activities or core classes and I wanted to instill that enjoyment of learning in my students. I have also admired the educators I have had before me and aspired to do what they do. I love seeing the sparks of interests that occur in my students when they finally understand the concepts being presented. I also love being able to share my love of music and creating music with my students.”
