School: L.G. Pinkston High School
Ensuring that every student has access to higher education is the one of the challenges that drew me to becoming a teacher. My goal in the classroom is to not only provide students with the curriculum, but more importantly with the ability to question the world around them, and teach them the skills to seek out those answers. Teaching World Geography allows me to do exactly that in a very real and immediate way, by showing them that the world is an enormous place with all kinds of people and cultures, and that West Dallas is just a small piece of it.
