Why did you decide to work in the education industry?
“I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. I always idolized my teachers growing up because they provided me with positive learning experiences that instilled in me a love for learning. When choosing a career, the answer was clear to me: I wanted to create positive learning experiences for other students. Having been in the classroom, I am now especially grateful for the opportunity to help students in underserved schools see higher education as an option.”
