Professional Biography

  • I constantly feel that I learn more from my students than they learn from me. I love the enthusiasm, courage, and determination I see in their eyes. This is what draws me to working with children and also what drives me to have high expectations of students. I want students to embrace their potential, and begin to believe they can do more than they imagined. To me this is the definition of learning.
