What do you hope to do/accomplish as an ACE Teacher?
I hope to foster a hospitable classroom environment in which each student feels that they can accomplish anything they put their mind to. I want to make goals with the students and with my fellow teachers and work hard to achieve them.
What experiences at your undergraduate institution helped shape your decision to pursue teaching as a possible vocation?
My decision to pursue ACE was shaped by relationships -- relationships with elementary school students I have tutored in the South Bend area, ACE team members, and the incredible professors I have had throughout my time at Notre Dame. By engaging in these various relationships, I have come to realize my desire to teach in a Catholic school and live in the intentional community that ACE fosters.
How do you hope to grow in your experience as an ACE Ambassador/Intern?
Throughout this year as an ACE Intern, I am excited to be a part of the ACE community and thus learn to embody the three pillars of ACE before my time as a teaching fellow even begins. I am also hoping to grow in my ability to walk alongside potential applicants as they discern the ways in which God is calling them to serve His Church.
