What really got me into teaching was that when I was a manager at a bank, I was teaching financial literacy to underprivileged neighborhoods and those who didn’t understand financial literacy at all. That made me want to teach in high school.

What I took away from the Career and Technical Education master’s program was that the foundations and mechanics of quality education are the same in every classroom. The content and the location can change, but all educators work from the same basic principles.
