Why Do I Teach?:
Teaching is truly a calling for me. I began college as an Electrical Engineering major and realized that I could do so much more to change the world by teaching others. I get so much joy out of teaching others about my love of reading, writing, and history in the hopes that my enthusiasm will become contagious and my students will learn to love those things too. Having greater access to technology will make learning not only much more enjoyable, but much more engaging as well because I can cover a greater amount of material with more depth so my students have the opportunity to learn so much more in the same amount of time.
