After working in a rehab hospital doing medical research in DC for the last two years, I knew I needed a change. One of our research projects looked at knowledge of injury prevention in pre-school-aged children and it made me realize how much I loved working with kids. So, I decided I wanted to become a teacher! I want to motivate students to WANT to learn and to carry their love of learning with them throughout their lives. I am so enthusiastic about being a teacher and I hope I will continue to be excited about teaching and encourage my students to be excited about school.
