I cannot say I always wanted to be teacher but I always knew teaching was something I was really good at. It is something I would do for free. I am eldest of four but first in the extended family of 50+ to attend college and graduate. As a first generation immigrant, I had the typical struggles in my early years of schooling. But I like to consider myself as a living cliche of the "American dream".
When I am not working on school related work, I spend majority of my wake hours with my two boys, six and three. When time permits, I love to cook, watch movies, shop and sing karaoke with my friends. We travel a lot and so far have been to: Thailand, Singapore, Japan, Hawa'ii, Taiwan, Dubai. There are a lot of things in my bucket list including a 21 day complete Europe tour.
Philosophy I live by: "A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes." Gandhi
