I am a school social worker in the largest district in our state. It is comprised of mostly inner city schools with very high rates of poverty. I am passionate about making sure every child, no matter how high need, is able to succeed. I love education, because we create opportunity for students that could quite possibly change their lives. Education was a saving grace for me and I hope I can instill the same hope in students that was instilled upon me from my own teachers and coaches growing up.
