My name is Josie Bombardiere, I am 22 years old and currently in my last year at the University of Central Florida studying Elementary Education. I grew up in Pembroke Pines, Florida where I attended a charter school from elementary to high school. Throughout my schooling, I had many amazing teachers who inspired me to eventually want to become one myself. To this day, I am thankful for those individuals who showed a true passion for teaching and wanting to make a difference in education. My hope is that I can continue in their footsteps and make an impact on someone as they all did for me.
I chose to follow this career path due to my love for working with children and seeing the influence that teachers can make in the lives of their students. Being a part of PedsAcademy has given me the opportunity to do just that. I have met so many incredible patients thus far who make me love what I do more and more each day and I am honored to be involved in such a rewarding program!
