"鈥淚 know this is the work I鈥檓 supposed to be doing, and I ground it in the fact that I am helping change lives through education. It feels great to provide students with the education they deserve in the community I grew up in. I recently had a parent text me about how excited her daughter was to talk about a book we recently read. It鈥檚 the little moments like that that make this work gratifying鈥"
