WHY YOU CHOSE EDUCATION AS A PROFESSION:

“[While working as a clothing store manager, the only part I liked was teaching people to do stuff, and most of my employees were young people. I was in McKinney on [U.S.] 380 when it hit me, this is what I needed to do. I went back to school and got certified. Paradise was the first place to hire me. I started as a business teacher and that evolved into computers and later this job.”
