“As an educator, my mission is to inspire and cultivate confidence in my students. I seek to do this by well demonstrating how the material I teach has purpose for them and by providing an environment that my students feel at ease. When this is well accomplished, it is then that the real learning can start.

I enjoy teaching very much and consider it a blessing to be able to do what I love.”
