The Professional page of my portfolio will outline my career as a professional educator. In my career as a professional educator I have had the opportunity to be an elementary school teacher, an Instructional Coordinator of Mathematics K-6, an Assistant Principal, and a volleyball coach. I have always considered myself a lifelong learner, never wanting to stand still or let my education become stagnant.  With this belief in mind, my passion for education and strong leadership and interpersonal skills, I have decided to pursue a Doctorate of Education in Educational Supervision and Administration at Saint Johnís University.

Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space.  It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe.  It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.
