"I believe that the teaching profession is a true calling. It requires patience, dedication, and the ability to assess and adjust one’s own practices. Teachers have the amazing ability to provide students with a framework of encouragement and guidance that will assist them in finding the passion to be lifelong learners. My mission as a teacher is to promote this passion for learning by igniting a spark in students to continue to develop their goals, skills, and talents."

“Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think” – Albert Einstein.
