HobbiesI am very interested in athletics, as well as music and dance. I feel that extracurricular activities should be positively correlated with a child's education. I believe that an education is one of the most precious gifts a child can receive and that many children are not always exposed to the positive aspects of learning. Many children have trouble relating schoolwork to any of their interests, therefore they view learning in a negative light. My goal is to help encourage children to become interested in learning by becoming familiar with their likes and dislikes.
