"At age 4, I would line up all my dolls and stuffed animals and play 'teacher'; At age 6, it continued but I graduated to using my siblings and younger family members as my 'students' instead! I wanted to be everything, but being a teacher always stayed close to my heart. What I like most about being with children are the little surprises every day brings. There's never a dull moment when being with children, and it's those moments that make me smile and feel warm and enjoy what I do.
When I am not working with children aI can be found at home with a book. I also love to watch new shows on Netflix and go to the movies with my friends. I love to travel and have been to countless places, such as New York and Florida, as well as Mexico and Nicaragua. I love photography, art, and music."
