"My mom and my Godmother were both teachers and I grew up an educational household. But for me it was about being a PE teacher specifically because my PE teachers and my coaches throughout my life were my biggest influences. Five of them actually were just at my wedding a month ago. The lessons they taught me throughout middle and high school are what prepared me for college and life. I learned how to be a good teammate, develop good sportsmanship, dedication, perseverance, hard work and dedication. My goal is to be able to teach and influence these life skills to the students I have the honor of teaching because there is so much more to sports and those lessons have made me a better person and I want that growth and development for my students through PE."
