CANDIDATE STATEMENT Growing up, I knew that my lifelong dream was to become a teacher. I have always had the passion for teaching and knew that my place in this world was in the classroom. During the past four years I have had the pleasure to take part in many educational experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. These rewarding experiences have made me realize that there is no other job I would rather have than to teach. The ability to touch a students life in a positive manner, to develop strong relationships with students, parents and faculty and the joy in seeing students achieve are what have defined my happiness in life.
