Why did you choose to join the Dominicans? I was teaching middle school math when I began looking into religious life. I had been around the Dominicans for years at Purdue, and was drawn to the order because of community and the mission of preaching. I hoped to continue teaching but as a friar rather than Mr. Trout.
