Who or what influenced you to become an educator? I had some great coaches and teachers that invested in me as a child and I want to be that same influence for the children I teach.

How do you spend your summer vacation? My wife and I always take our three kids on a week long summer vacation somewhere. Usually we find a great place someone close to water so we can enjoy some time at the beach.

What’s the most rewarding part of being an educator? The most rewarding part is getting to impact a student’s story.
