Hi everyone! I am a doctoral student at the University of Virginia and this is my 3rd year working with this class at CHS. I always find the question “What do you need to know to understand me?” really difficult to answer. I feel like some people know ALL the facts about me , like age, ethnicity, education, etc, but still fail to understand me; others know very little information about me, but really get me because they have read something I wrote or heard me speak on a topic that resonates with me.
I guess that is a long way of saying that to understand me, you have to know that I care a lot about the society I live in and education; That is why I am always trying to make things better wherever I go :). I am big on reading and thinking and discussing, so I am constantly changing and growing. I am looking forward to learning a lot from the class this year!
