Why I Teach

I try to make learning fun, engrossing and personally meaningful. Each one of my classes has a theme, incorporates a compelling activity and invites students to interact with each other. Given examples and instruction, individuals are asked to engage with the material and then are offered feedback and encouragement that will lead to academic confidence and mastery.

I teach because I want to transform lives and empower young people to make a difference.
