What were the factors that influenced you to become a teacher? 

"I have always said that teaching is a calling; being that there are some people who were simply born to teach. Looking back on the path that lead me to my teaching career, I do not remember a time when I was not teaching to some degree.  Even while I was in elementary school, I had my makeshift gradebook and chalkboard pretending to teach. I had incredible elementary school teachers who were passionate and eager, and I aspired to be just like them. I loved everything about school, including taking charge, which made a fierce combination. These qualities set the foundation for who I would become as an educator."
