Defining Moment in Education
I have always been a student who loves learning new things. I took ASL in high school and fell in love with the language. The University of Arizona has one of the top Interpreting programs. I wanted to be around kids whether it be interpreting in a classroom or teaching. I have worked with elementary, middle, and high school kids who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Hearing. My defining moment was realizing no matter who you are or how you communicate, education will always be something that brings everyone together. Graduating from the University of Arizona (BearDown) I decided to continue my education receive my Masters in Education and teach the language that has influenced my life and hope it influences my students as well.
Core Educational Belief
"You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it." My educational belief is to provide my students with the success learning a second language. I am hopeful my students will not only be able to involve themselves in the language but also the culture that surrounds the language. Learning a second language will help students see the world in a different perspective and will benefit them when they further on with their education and careers.
