I knew I wanted to be a teacher from the age of 3. I volunteered and eventually was employed by the Boys and Girls Club of America and my teacher passion ignited even more. But, I convinced myself that I was destined to be a nurse when I graduated high school in 2004.

After two years of stress, unhappiness, and burn out, I left college to be a CNA. This just solidified that I did not want to be a nurse at all.

I somehow ended up in dispatch and took 911 calls and dispatched police, fire, and EMS from 2009-2016. Taking emergency calls was something I enjoyed, but there was something missing.

In 2016, I went back to school to pursue my teaching degree. In 2019, I graduated with the support of my family, friends, and my inner self. Today, I am proud to say I am a teacher.

This year is my first year to step into my own classroom and I feel peace and fulfillment. I cannot wait to love and inspire my students. I also cannot wait to encourage them to be what they dream.

This is what I'm destined to be.

Teachers affect eternity, no one can tell where their influence stops. Henry Brook Adams”
