Why I Teach

I teach to make a difference in the lives of my students! The relationships I form with my students is what drives me everyday. Each day I take the time to connect with my students and let them know that someone cares. I see each day as a new day, regardless of what happened the day before. I work to create positive, supportive relationships with my students because no significant learning can occur without a significant relationship.
