I have a cheesy math teacher shirt on in this photo. It represents my personable personality that allows me to build relationships with the kids: Building strong mentoring relationships that impact student lives, learning and the future is why I teach!

Why I Teach
I have always desired to become a teacher to break mindsets of failure, and replace them with mindsets of victory that students can generalize to every aspect of their lives. I truly believe that getting quality education from someone who truly cares about your success should not be based on district or expensive. My favorite part of teaching is building relationships with these wonderful young people and seeing them succeed is heart throbbing genuinely. I also love teaching alongside my colleagues, who have all very much so become my family.
