I decided to become a teacher to fight educational inequity in U.S. schools and improve opportunities for students. I started my career as a journalist reporting on education issues in South Carolina. That exposure to the reality of the achievement gap in the United States inspired me to apply for Teach For America so that I could have a direct impact on students in classrooms.
