I have 15 years of teaching experience ranging from Preschool to High School.
I believe inspiration is the motivation behind learning. Students will respond to our level of commitment and energy and will directly reflect that level, good or bad. I always strive, therefore, to give my students 110% of my energy and enthusiasm. They will meet and exceed our expectations, so let's make sure we set the bar high. They will achieve their goals and have a great time doing it!
