I have always wanted my work to have a positive impact and reflect my personal values. My belief that education can change the world led me to join a program to become a certified K-6 educator, start actively learning about the field, and aim my career goals toward impacting the educational system. Teachers, students, and learners of all ages inspire me because there is so much we can imagine when we are learning. I am hopeful that when we are given the opportunity and support to imagine new ideas and solutions, we have more potential to build a future that is just and better for everyone.
The concept of humane education was so energizing to me because, despite my high hopes for education, there are so many harmful issues within current systems of teaching and schooling. By reimagining education, IHE’s philosophy and programs offer a solution to so many interconnected problems. IHE’s mission is aligned with my personal commitment to justice and compassion. My most meaningful work has been distributing educational content and telling important stories. In my role as Marketing and Social Media Specialist, I hope to continue this work, help to grow awareness of humane education and solutionary thinking, and play a role in creating a more equitable and sustainable world.
