Hard, but rewarding

Since I graduated from college, my dream was to be a teacher. After the suggestion of an amazing mentor, my track towards inspiring others began. But being a military wife postponed that dream for many years. 4 years ago, I finally got the opportunity to finish my dream. After many hours of observations, numerous nights…

Honesty
