What inspired you to work in education and with children?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been interested in public education and children’s rights. I didn’t experience one defining moment; instead, my passion has snowballed over the last 15 years of volunteering and working as a tutor, teacher, mentor, guardian ad litem, and advocate. In the process, I’ve been continuously inspired and sustained by young people who are full of life and resilience in the face of tremendous obstacles.
