Why did you say "yes" to serving children in Catholic schools through ACE?

I said yes because I knew that I wanted to serve kids in under-resourced schools, and ACE is a program that will prepare me to serve children to the best of my abilities so that kids in the Catholic schools that ACE serves will get a quality teacher.

Why did you say "yes" to serving children in Catholic schools through ACE?

I chose to say "yes" to ACE because I saw the power of education in my own life. My family is full of Catholic school educators, and I chose to teach in Catholic schools because I experienced first-hand the impact of Catholic school teachers.
