I am most passionate about education and ensuring that the students I teach receive the best education possible.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My hero is my mother because she taught me to push forward no matter what life throws at you, to never give up. She also imparted to me how important it is to keep a smile on your face and remain positive in any situation.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

My favorite sound is rain because it is calming and it is cleansing the Earth. It allows me to stop and reflect by sitting still.

What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

I’m a teacher in a small private school and I would like to use the laptop to plan sessions that are active and engaging for students by integrating interactive learning. By adding an interactive element to my classes I know I can take my teaching to the next level. A laptop would also help me keep in contact with my peers through Skype.
