I am an approachable as well as patient and perseverant teacher who employs professional kindness towards all students. I continue to exhibit ongoing learning, which can benefit my growth as a person and as a teacher. My goal is to be a teacher who encourages student learning both in and out of the classroom and ultimately prepares students for their own life journeys in a shared environment.
