I love the diversity of the student population because each student brings their own culture and background. It is a melting pot with different experiences and knowledge.

Why I Teach

My inspiration comes from knowing that I can make a difference in a student’s life. I teach because I enjoy watching a student learn a concept or skill. It is amazing watching the excitement fill his or her body when he or she masters something or when you can observe the light bulb going off in that aha moment. The aha moment is when the student realizes all his or her hard work paid off because he or she persevered to get to that moment.
