Not too long ago, Lariza didn’t aspire to teach, but her high school physics teacher inspired her to change lives just like he had changed hers. The potential to educate the young minds of future leaders is what excites Lariza most about becoming a teacher. She plans to educate elementary bilingual learners, and her students will be encouraged to follow their dreams no matter what obstacles they face.
"To teach is to make a difference that lasts a lifetime." - Lariza Vazquez
