Don Williams, Jr., once said, “The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.” The life-long goals and self-concepts which I possess are consistently upgraded to a higher standard are symbolically represented by this famous quote; and, my love and perception of the fields of education and fitness and my role within them, is primarily what I reflect upon when reading these very words. Currently, I am a first grade teacher in Philadelphia and nurture, teach, inspire, comfort, and discipline 29 children from various ethnic backgrounds. When I am not teaching, I am tutoring students between 4th grade and college level in mathematics, grammar skills, and essay composition through Tutor.com. My “relaxation” time includes going to the gym daily, training at least five clients at all times, representing my home gym as a sales representative, baking biscotti cookies, attending Church, and brainstorming my next big idea or project; in other words, I never slow down!
