I have the passion to teach and to reach all students. It is my goal to re-invent myself as an educator each year for the new students that enter the classroom. I want to maximize their learning experience and make it a loving, supportive, engaging, positive, safe, fun, and effective educational environment. In addition, I want to be able to provide the same support and resources for other educators.
