My favorite quote is "it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness" [Eleanor Roosevelt]

This quote just reminds me to look for the positive or be the positive when things are dark.

I have always been drawn to education in all aspects of my life.  Since I was young, I taught Sunday school and choir. In high school, I was a tutor. When I did hair and makeup, my favorite part was teaching my clients how to do the looks at home. But my heart is in educating children and watching them grow and mature.  I am so excited to be attending GCU to get my teaching degree and fulfill my dream of being in the classroom and have students of my own. 

I find joy in being creative. Makeup is my hobby, I appreciate the history and the art of application, packaging, and the whole process of creating the product. I also love coloring and puzzles and crochet. I also LOVE math. Anywhere I can incorporate math into my life, I will do it! My husband and children are my best friends and we spend lots of time playing with and being entertained by our cats and pet rats.
