Why are you passionate about education?
“My father described education as a self-enlightening routine that is enriched daily through reading, writing and learning principals; textbooks and teachers are the tools. He would say, ‘Grasp it and excel, but remember to give back.’ My work here at Achieve allows me to give back by being a supporting tool for educators through Achieve’s work, which is designed to improve the quality of education that’s made available to all students.”
