Teacher Ambassador

Quote Bubble Icon

My favorite part about teaching is when I notice the light bulb glowing in the minds of my students. When a student has difficulty understanding something, and then finally cross the finish line with understanding, I feel so proud and eager to continue giving my students my best.

      Why I Teach

      I wanted to ensure that every student I encounter goes forward knowing they are loved and valued. More importantly, the students will know that they are able to accomplish anything they put their minds to.
