I am very happy to be an educator because I love working with students and being part of their growth. I look forward to working with you all!
My Educational Philosophy
High school is an important period in life for students to explore their areas of interests. I believe a strong interest is a great motivator for them to learn and thrive. As an educator I will do my best to activate my students’ love of learning each day and provide guidance and support in their journey of learning and creating a platform for students to leap into a successful future.
