Why I Teach

I come back to the classroom each and every day because, as much as I influence the hearts and minds of my students, they impact me in return. 

The field of education has given me everything I could ever want out of a career: a work environment where creativity and spontaneity are encouraged, the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others, and a profession where I am challenged every day to improve as both an educator and a person.
