Defining Moment in My Education
I have wanted to be a teacher or school couselor since I was a young girl. I've always wanted a career in which I could help children. My senior year in high school I got a job in an after school program, where I helped kids with thier homeowrk and planned STEM, art, and multi-cultural activities. I loved creating lessons and watching the students have fun while learning about the world around them.
Core Educational Belief
I believe all students learn. I believe to educate is to empower. All students have the right to a high quality, well-rounded education that stimulates them to ask questions, think critically, solve problems, and be people of character. I believe in setting high expectations, dreaming big, and setting goals in order to achieve greatness.
"Education is the most powerful weapon in which you can use to change the world." -Nelson Mandela
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education." -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
"Knowledge itself in Power." -Sir Francis Bacon
