I talk with my students about how we don’t need to run from things that are hard—that those are things we can lean into and work through together.

          Why I Teach

          I wanted to impact students who really needed someone in their life. I wanted to make connections with students that would lead them to learning and that would lead them to caring about the people around them for the rest of their lives.
