Life in the City

Since the 2000s conservation efforts have managed to save many architectural pieces and achieved several large-scale revitalizations, including the restoration of several historic theatres and entertainment venues, high-rise renovations, new sports stadiums, and a riverfront revitalization project. This means there's always plenty for us to do (when we're not lesson planning and teaching!).

If you had to pick just one word to describe your ACE experience so far, what would it be (and why)?

Growth; there have been so many opportunities to know better and do better, and I'm grateful for the support I've gotten from my peers and mentors in ACE along the way.

Why did you say "Yes" to ACE?

Every child is a beautiful blessing from God deserving of not only His love, but the expression of that love through the teachers God places in a child's life. Saying "yes" to ACE represented a "yes" to educating the whole child - mind, body, and soul, a "yes" to planting and cultivating the seeds of curiosity and the pursuit of virtue, and a "yes" to change a life.
