Angelika wants her future students to know it doesn’t matter where you come from; it matters where you end up. When she thinks about teaching, Angelika is most excited about being a hero for her students. She wants them to be able to be themselves in a safe environment. She is excited to learn and grow with them.
When she was a sophomore in college, someone asked Angelika what she wanted to do in life. She told them she wanted to change peoples’ lives. She said she wanted to interact with different people and change the world. She then asked herself how she could do that and it came to her. She said to herself, “Angelika McTiller, you need to be a teacher!”
"Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best." - Angelika McTiller
