Camp English Professor
Education is my life and my calling. The English language ignites my love of reading and writing, and I wish for it to be the same for others. As a mother, teacher, and tutor, I know how important it is to encourage daily learning. This knowledge inspires my life and my career goals.
I will continue my work as a college professor, as a writer of short shorts and poems, and as a publisher of research. In the future, I hope to establish websites relevant to critical thinking and English composition.I am eager to fulfill my legacy as a change agent.
