What experiences at your undergraduate institution helped shape your decision to pursue teaching as a possible vocation?
I think that being involved in Youth Ministry in my undergrad helped me to determine my passion for teaching students. It allowed me to see the classroom as not only a place for learning about educational standards but also learning about the ways we can live our lives to be more like Jesus. Being an undergraduate education major, I have had many experiences working in the classroom and being able to teach kids allowed me to understand that teaching makes me experience joy.
What do you hope to do/accomplish as an ACE teacher?
I hope to be able to build a strong community between not only my fellow ACE teachers but also in the classroom. I want to help my students understand the material that they need to learn in a new and fun way that they might not be used to.
How do you hope to grow in your experience as an ACE Ambassador?
I hope to grow in my spiritual life during my time as an ACE Ambassador. Being in a community that is so supportive makes the hard things in the spiritual world a lot easier.
