A Teacher: I love sharing knowledge with others, which is one of the many reasons why I decided to pursue higher education. Currently, I teach first year writing, an introductory college writing course.
An Encourager: I love life and try my best to find the positive in every situation. We cannot control our circumstances, but we can control how we react to them. If I cannot find the good in a situation, I try to find the lesson that will help me become a better individual moving forward. My life’s motto is to encourage, inspire, and uplift others.
