I am a firm believer that life and learning should be fun and enjoyable, and I hope I can teach my children that learning is fun and to focus on the positive things about themselves and in their lives, in order for them to live happier lives. I hope that if I become a teacher that my personal strengths can help children flourish and realize the greatness that has always been within them.
