“To me, education is so much more than facts and information. Education is about the experience of learning any and everything. It’s about learning typical subjects like math and English as well as learning how to be kind and respect others. Education isn’t something that ends with school, it continues until the end of time. I plan to continue my education in and out of the classroom. In my continuing education I hope to study psychology to get a better understanding of why our minds work the way they do and why learning is much more than books and tests.”
