Three things you might not know about me...

What was your favorite vacation? I can not pick just one vacation. I decided I wanted to teach history when I visited Europe while in high school.  I love to travel to see historical sites.  My vacations usually incorporate historical sites as well as family time.  Presidential sites and European countries are all on my bucket list. 

If I wasn’t a teacher I would be a tour guide at a historical site.

Why did you decide to become a teacher? I decided to become a history teacher because I became aware through my travels to historical sites in Europe that if we are not aware of the past and learn from the mistakes of the past we are "doomed to repeat them.
