What do you value most about your KDP membership?
I value the connections that I get to make by being involved with this prestigious organization. Education is really a field where collaboration is paramount, and I am grateful that by being a member of KDP, not only do I get to interact with a lot of different educators, but also educators that I know take this profession seriously.
What is your most used KDP member benefit?
I’m new to KDP, so I am still exploring the many different ways that I can use my membership. But from browsing on the message boards (in KDP Global) , it will definitely be a great resource that I can go to to ask other educators questions.
What do you love about being an educator?
I’m still in school, so I wouldn’t call myself a full-fledged educator just yet, but what I’m looking forward to is having a positive impact on my students lives. There are a lot of kids out there who do not have people to encourage them in their dreams and give them direction, and I look forward to being that for my students.
