My twin sister and I were the first in our family to go away to college, and while our parents were very supportive, we had to navigate the world of college admissions, financial aid, and college planning without a lot of guidance.  I can vividly remember each semester waiting for my financial aid check to come in before I could head to the bookstore to buy my books.  I always try to remember that there are so many things going on in students’ lives that we might not know about as teachers.  I want to be available to students so that if life is getting in their way, they will reach out and perhaps I can be of help!
