Learning has always been a joy for Veronica. From reading to classroom activities, she loves new discoveries and inquiry. In second grade, she moved to a new house and wanted to turn her room into a classroom. She had a desk and a white board, and would teach her stuffed animals.

Getting to share her love for learning and empowering people to find what they love made education a natural path for Veronica. She hopes her future students see the power they hold to change the world both now and in their future. She sees their individual creativity as a treasure that they get to share with the world. “Knowledge is a powerful tool that liberates and empowers people. It allows them to pursue passions and follow curiosities,” she said.
