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

I hope to serve under-resourced communities and impact the next generation of Catholic School students. I know that ACE has had a tremendous impact on the communities in which its teachers serve and I could think of no better way to advance my education and career than in service in a community like ACE.

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

I have wanted to be a teacher since early on in high school. I knew that Monmouth had the academic programs that I wanted to pursue in hopes of one day teaching in a school setting. Monmouth has afforded me the opportunity to obtain a real mastery of content in both History and English that I can use in a classroom to help impact the next generation.

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

I hope that I can really envelope myself in community with my other Ambassadors while simultaneously spreading the ACE message for people who are still in their undergraduate education and want to go on to teach and serve.
