What made you want to work in education?

I am from a family of educators and was also inspired by my high school Spanish teacher, Mr. Webster. I started to see education through a social justice lens when I began practicum work in college and started working at Michigan Migrant Head Start during the summers. Students have been my inspiration ever since!

What is the best advice you've ever been given?

Remember, you never lose; You win and you learn.
