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

I have always had a passion for education, and ACE made it easy to say yes with the organization of the program bringing together passionate educators and Catholic schools in need to give the students in their communities a great education.

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

I truly believe all children deserve the radical love and high achieving environments that Catholic schools can provide. To be a part of this mission, serving as an ACE teacher, gives me the opportunity to participate in something much greater than myself while working in the smallest corners of the U.S.
