What do you hope to do/accomplish as an ACE Teacher?

I hope to help my students find a passion unique to themselves, and instill in them the confidence to pursue it.

What experiences at your undergraduate institution helped shape your decision to pursue teaching as a possible vocation?

After going on a couple mission trips out of the country and volunteering in my own city, I started to draw towards service post-graduation. At its core, teaching is service, as well as a possible life-long commitment that gives me a platform to work actively towards a more equitable world and influence students to create change in the world.

How do you hope to grow in your experience as an ACE Ambassador/Intern?

I will challenge myself to be adaptable when curveballs come at me in the classroom and to recognize God working through myself and my students, even in my most overwhelming moments.
