  • College Years

    College Years
    The next step after high school was Simpson College where I decided to major in Elementary Education. I love kids and thought this would be the right fit for me! I have endorsements in reading and early childhood. <p> Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is, not a preparation for life; education is life itself.
