Legacy: First off, I’d like to thank my parents before anyone else. Between taking me to all my gymnastics competitions, practices, soccer games, basketball games, horseback riding lessons, I couldn’t put anyone before them. I wouldn’t be the athlete, student, or the person I am today if I didn’t have them in my life. My mom, Debra as most know, has had a great influence on my life. My mom and I are very close and I’m so glad I could have such an amazing relationship with my mom.

Whether it’s babysitting, volunteering with children, or spending time with my three younger siblings, I have had a lot of experience working with children. I began my babysitting experience with my siblings, then family friends and neighbors. But, my best and favorite customers have been my parents that frequently have me care for my two sisters (ages 10 and 3) and brother (age 7) and we enjoy playing games, reading stories, and making art and crafts; also, I help them do homework, feed them meals and put them to sleep. Having younger siblings, I’ve truly grown to love working with children, and especially teaching them.

My mother had a love of reading which she desperately tried to pass on to her children. I remember we would go to the Library all the time, which was one of my favorite memories as a child. My mom would tell us to pick out three books each and off we would go. When I was young I defiantly judged a book by its cover, I wanted the outside to look inviting and then maybe I would pick it out to discover what the inside was all about. My mother would read to us every night, at first just some simple children’s books and then, as we got older, we would read novels together.
If she could change on part of her life it would be high school. She would relive high school because she would want to try harder and care more about her grades. Her greatest success in life was graduating college and becoming a teacher. That was her greatest success because it was her dream to be a teacher. My favorite memory with my mom is when we took a cruise the day after christmas.
