Why I Became an Educator

Going through school, I saw how personal barriers could hinder the educational experiences and opportunities of people in my life. I then knew I wanted to help future students overcome barriers of their own so they could reach their full educational potential. This led me to become a school counselor.

I love that I can communicate with our students in so many ways—whether it be in my LiveLesson® meeting room with camera and microphone or just a chat box, talking on the phone, or sending WebMail messages. There is something for everyone, no matter what their communication style.
