When did you first know that you wanted to be a teacher or work in education?
When I was in college. When deciding what career path to take, I chose to become a teacher because it combined several things that I love: reading, writing and working with youth. I knew that the role of an English teacher would be perfect for me.
If you were an app, which app would you be and why?
