I returned to school in 2015. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree, 10 years earlier. I had always wondered if I could be a teacher. I was unsure of if I could handle school after being away for so long. I was never the best student. I worked hard and when all was said and done, I left grad school with a 3.9 GPA. Hard work paid off.


  • Dual certified in Childhood and Special Education
