    "Teaching is definitely an assignment that grants me a boundless repertoire of moments to appreciate the gift of education.Having taught for 20 years, I firmly believe that shared power within the classroom is possible, and produces an atmosphere conducive to learning.  The atmosphere is charged by creating expectations that make for an effective learning environment where students can, consistently, practice being self-directed learners."



Vision Statement
