My goal as an educator is to help students strive to do their best and accomplish the tasks that they fear the most. I feel that getting beyond our fears and accomplishing the things that frighten us most, we are able to grow and learn more about our world. I want to create a love of learning with my students, so they strive to always be their best and do their best.
