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

I hope to positively impact the lives of my students in the same way that I was positively impacted by so many great teachers throughout my years in school and college.

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

Throughout college I grew more serious about my faith, eventually joining a number of Catholic social clubs and beginning to attend daily Mass on campus. Because of my faith, I realized a great way to pass along the Catholic religion and make a real difference in people's lives is to teach in a Catholic school.

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

I hope to grow in my faith while at the same time gaining practical insights into how to be an interesting and impactful teacher, skills that will help me in my future career.
