Considering the state of the world that we are currently living in, my answer today is; every first responder and healthcare worker around the globe.
4. What is your favorite aspect of the MHS community?
Our mission is second to none and I love that we are all here working as one to improve our student’s lives and their futures.

In my COVID-19 role, I am modeling compassion while providing knowledge to employees so they can focus on their health and well-being. I strive to be a team player and to continue my personal and professional growth. I also enjoy collaborating with others with the goal in mind to keep our community safe so we can continue our in-person classroom structure for students.
