I am excited and honored by the opportunity to work with current and future educators. Education is the foundation of our life and society. It should be at the forefront of our priorities and is the key to success in an individual’s life. I believe students should have a role in their learning and contribute to their educational environment and the larger community.

My goal as an educator is to have my students feel self-worth as individuals and as life-long learners.
