Why I Became an Educator
My parents inspired me to get into education and this started at an early age. My mother worked in education for as long as I can remember as a substitute teacher, tutor, and secretary; and my father is a retired minister. At an early age, I was able to see the power there is in teaching, counseling, and mentoring young people and adults and how that can change people's lives. This is where my passion for helping others began, and that passion still remains one of my driving forces today.
