Which teacher had the biggest impact on you? Why?

My high school choir director because it was so evident that he cared so much more about our value as individuals, rather than just as his students.

What was your favorite book as a child?

My mom read the Boxcar Children Collection to us growing up, and reading about their adventures at night before bed are some of my favorite childhood memories.

What is your dream for Texas children? 

My dream for Texas children is that they would know how incredibly valuable they are because of the opportunities they are given to succeed.
