Q.What made you want to become a teacher?

A. I knew I wanted to be a teacher ever since I was a sophomore in high school. I was sitting in English class, and I was so awed and inspired by how much fun my teacher was able to make the content. It fueled my embers of passion for literature and composition to the point that it became a great fire, which illuminated what I was meant to do to better myself, our society, and our future generations. It is my goal as a teacher to spark that same passion in my students, if not necessarily for English, then at least a passion for helping others and doing what they can to make the world a better place
