I teach because I love kids! They are a renewable source of hope and encouragment, all you need to know is how to tap into it.
Defining Moment in Education
My inspiring moment happened as a young child who could read difficult music like Chopin or Mozart and translate notes on a page into beautiful sound, yet I had difficulty reading and comprehending words. I don't want any other child to experience that struggle.
Core Educational Belief
I strive to create a genuinely warm, welcome and fun environment with much laughter that captures student interest and turns it into active participation in the classroom.
