I teach to make a positive difference in the lives of students and ensure that anyone who works for success can achieve it. My goal is that all students learn knowledge and skills that will build their capacity for a better future. My priorities as a teacher are that all students feel valued, have their worldviews respected, and feel supported as they work towards their goals, confident that I am on their team, cheering them on, through every task in their journey.
