Why I Became an Educator
Growing up, I never imagined or desired to be a teacher. But as I was going through college I slowly, yet steadily, began to realize that my true vocation and calling was that of helping young people mature as well as expand their cultural horizons. I absolutely mean it when I say that walking though that door at Gamewell every morning is still the greatest honor ever bestowed upon me.
