I am a product of the public school system, I really enjoyed playing soccer since childhood and had dreams of becoming a pro. This did not work out and I moved in with my grandmother. She raised me and I owe so much to her for my positive attitude. I fell in love with education in my time at Lennox Middle School. This inspired me to pursue a career in education, I met Kristin Droege and she gave me an opportunity and I took advantage of it.
