"While earning my Education Specialist degree from LaGrange College, I was encouraged to take ownership in the classroom, and that was important to me. Today, I'm teaching the way I wish that I had been taught when I was in middle school… showing my students that I'm a regular person who's trying to help them get to the next step in their lives through an education."
