    • I have always been passionate about volunteer work, and this work inspired me to become a teacher. I began my career working with City Year, an Americorps organization that places corps members in low income schools to tutor and mentor students that are falling behind grade level. After this experience I decided to major in education and currently teach an early childhood special education classroom. I have also worked extensively with students ages K-6 in a variety of classroom and afterschool settings. Along with this, I have had the opportunity to Volunteer with the English for New Americans program in my community. Some other volunteer experiences include building a water harvester for a community in Nicaragua, and working with the Cincinnati coalition for the homeless.
