Why I Teach
I encourage all of my students to reflect on their unique needs, experiences and backgrounds to discover the personal relevance the class material has on their lives. As a teacher, I am continuously learning to adapt to new students, and I am reminded that teaching is a lifelong vocation.
I chose this profession because I enjoy the daily opportunity to interact with students from all walks of life, to help them in discovering their true potentials and to learn from them.
