Why did you want to become an educator?
Initially, I wanted to become an educator because of my role models as a child.  I had the opportunity to watch one of the best PE teachers up close, my mom, throughout my life and saw what an educator can truly accomplish.  The long lasting effect an educator can have not only on their student's school work, but their overall life is something that has inspired me to pursue this profession.

What is your favorite part of being an educator?
