I completed my doctorate in Educational leadership in the Spring of 2013 and I have a dream of one day opening a school of my own. I love new ideas, so please feel free to share with me. I am not an education expert nor do I pretend to be. However, learning and sharing is my life and isn't that what teaching is all about.
