Q.

Why did you choose your major?
A. I got into history when I was in the Marines, and I want to make an impact on kid's lives.  I want to get into a middle or high school, to be the support for kids who don't have any support at home.  I was taught to respect others and I want to teach that to others who may not have anyone at home to teach them.  I don't look like a traditional teacher so I think I can have a real connection with the kids, yet teach them as well.  I can be the "cool" teacher with the tattoos and Marine background that they can talk to. 

Q.

How has your experience been at ACM?
A. I love it here because it is small and personal.  It's not so big that the teachers don't know your name due to class size.  It's a clean campus and security is present; not that I need security, but it is nice to see.  

Q.

Why would you recommend ACM to future students?
A. I would recommend ACM due to the one-on-one personal attention you get here.  The teachers are always willing to go above and beyond to help you.  

Q.

What advice would you give future students?
A. Take college seriously, it is not an extension of high school.  I didn't know that the first time around and after two semesters, was not the best student.  Now that I am older, I look at it from a different side.
