When I’m not working, I usually love to run, either by myself or with my dogs. As strange as it may sound, my passion is roller coasters and other death-defying rides. I try to find a Slingshot ride in each state I move to.
I started my career as a teacher, and I will always remember the simple advice gifted to me by my mentor: “The person speaking most is learning most.” It changed the way I viewed my mission and allowed me to always have classes be driven by my students.
Mostly I will enjoy Menaul’s mission of diversity. I studied abroad in college and it was such an impactful experience to live in a house with people from six different countries. With its focus on World Smart, I look forward to helping provide financial assistance to students around the globe who would thrive here.
When I saw that Menaul had just celebrated over one-and-a-quarter centuries, I could not pass up the chance to work somewhere so deeply rooted in Albuquerque’s past.Marcus Scharbach
