I am about to embark on a new journey that I didn't initially plan on, and I could not be happier with my decision to give it a try. This decision came about as a result of my experience as an AmeriCorps volunteer. I was a literacy tutor in a Title 1 school and after seeing how much I was able to accomplish with the kids that I worked with I came to the realization that there was so much more that I could offer and accomplish with a much greater population. I am originally from a small town in Texas, I attended Texas State University and obtained a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I went through a regional educator certification program and I have attended several different trainings to help prepare me for this new experience. In the future I hope to attend graduate school to work on a master's degree in school counseling, and I hope to eventually become an elementary school principal.
