Why I Teach
I am a proud product of Lancaster ISD and became a teacher because I wanted to push students further than I was pushed in high school. My junior year of college, I read a bulletin board in the science department that was asking for teachers. I was initially interested, but changed my mind because my family didn't support the career, thinking it would be a low-earning profession.
“I was a pharmacy tech after college, but I felt like I wasn’t fulfilling my purpose. I wasn’t giving back.”
I began thinking about what gave me energy and drive. I remembered that Isd loved building up her peers when I was Senior Class President at Lancaster High Schools so decided that I had to go back to building up students. I decided to go back home to Lancaster. I abide by this quote:
“I don’t know If I’m meant to change the world, but I’m sure I’ll be the person who sparks the mind that will.”
