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

I hope to communicate to students that I am on their side and that I believe in every student's ability to succeed. I aim to be a model of love and commitment to each student, while also always striving to grow and be a life long learner!

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

Each community and activity I've participated in at Notre Dame have all lead me to ACE in their own unique ways. Through communities like Lewis, Notre Dame Vision, and Campus Ministry I've had several opportunities for mentorship and building meaningful relationships. I see teaching with ACE as a continuation of what I've grown to love so much about these communities at Notre Dame.

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

I am excited to continue to share the mission of ACE! This year I hope to learn from the amazing ACE team and to always be open to opportunities for growth.
