"Educators create learning opportunities for students. This can only be done if educators continue to be students themselves."

"There is something very inspiring about watching the transformation of a student from when they walk in the door as a 6th grade student until they walk across the stage as a young adult heading out to conquer the world. I truly enjoy watching and assisting in their journey!"
