Why I Teach

I hope to be a springboard to greater things for my students rather than a gatekeeper. Even though I set high standards, I believe I have an obligation to support my students’ achievements of learning objectives in every possible way.

I teach because I want to make a difference in young people’s lives. Teaching is the most spiritually and emotionally rewarding job that I ever have had.
