"Teaching has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember."

I love the possibility of being able to influence so many children while passing my knowledge on to them. I want to help my students find their passions and explore all areas of the curriculum to figure out what they like and dislike. I believe that SVSU has prepared me to shape the minds of many, while allowing them to maintain the individuality that makes them so unique, and for that, I am grateful.

Receiving scholarships definitely impacted my decision to attend SVSU. There’s just no comparison to other schools when you have the support of donors to help defray college costs. I’m so grateful for the support I received.

I'll be teaching in the Bullock Creek School District after graduation, and I can confidently say that SVSU has prepared me for the real world. I wouldn’t be the person that I am today without all the amazing people that I met throughout my collegiate journey. I am looking forward to what the future holds for me as a proud SVSU alumna!
