“As a child, I loved to play school, and of course, I had to be the teacher. Today my dreams of having a career in education are a reality. I’m thankful to all of my education professors who have taught me so much about creating a warm, compassionate, and positive classroom. Teaching young children can be a daunting task, but my professors have instilled in me the skills and confidence to succeed. Teaching is truly a ‘work of the heart’ and I intend to always be the best teacher that I can be.”
