What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me
I firmly believe that pursuing a passion is important for everyone in order to bring joy to life. When I was in high school, I came to realize that I was passionate about Spanish language and culture. Following this passion, I decided to study abroad in Granada, Spain for a semester while attending college. This ended up being the best semester of my college career, and I was able to discover the world while pursuing my passion. Passion is everything - find yours and discover what it has to offer!
A Teachable Moment
As soon as I turned 15, I got my first job as a Swim Lesson Instructor at the local pool. After spending time with the kids and seeing how excited they were when they would finally be able to do a back float (or even just put their face in the water), I knew right away that I wanted to be a teacher. Seeing their success and excitement for learning was so rewarding, and I am thankful to still be able to see those moments every day.
