Why I Teach

As a professional who has had several careers prior to entering the field of education, the importance of becoming a life-long learner in this global workplace became embedded into my psyche. 

As an educator, I help students acquire valuable skills and develop an innate sense of curiosity about the world they live in. This thirst for knowledge is difficult to instill in young students. A teacher requires a passion for the material, a conceptual perspective, the ability to present information to many different types of learners and, most significantly, the ability to develop a strong relationship with his or her students. 

As an educator, I strive to meet these goals on a daily basis. As the students achieve success and develop pride in their own accomplishments, the sense of purpose and pride in my students make me look forward to every day I teach. When done correctly, it is the teacher who learns from his or her students. A life of giving and shaping young minds offers the greatest reward a professional life can offer.
