I am passionate about teaching and higher education! I love the look on students' faces when they understand. Moreover, I love making a difference in my community by teaching first and second generation college students. But when I am not teaching or contributing to higher education, my family takes the first position in my life and in my heart. I love my father, mother, and sister with all my heart and soul; they are my rock. I enjoy working out as well and just being physical in general! I hope to start hiking with my friend John real soon too. Being fit has been a way of life for me for many years, and I love to try anything new when it comes to the outdoors. I am also a real animal lover with four delightful parrots that share my life (all rescues). With all of this having been said, and me telling you all my loves and passions, what are yours?
