Why I Teach: I like watching my students learn and grow. It always amazes me how fast kids develop.
What I Believe: Within every child dwells a hidden spark of genius. As a teacher, my role is to stir that spark awake and guide it towards its fullest expression.
My Favorite Things: I live a very full life. My passions include travel, reading, writing, exercising, visiting with friends/family, rock-climbing, martial arts, gymnastics/acrobatics, and breakdance.
How I help every student succeed: I’m taking the time to build good relationships with my students. By knowing as much as I can about each student’s personality and learning style, I find it easier to spot areas of struggle and adjust my instruction based on their individual needs.
