"I think that teachers can have a great impact on a person’s life and I hope to be a positive influence on my students every day. I think that UNK truly prepared me for life beyond college. The things I learned in the classroom helped me prepare for my career, and the life experiences I had in Kearney helped me prepare to become a responsible adult."
