"Having spent my entire adult life as an advocate for education both as a public school teacher and a teacher of future teachers, I have dedicated my professional career to helping students of all ages reach their goals and fulfill their potential. My commitment is to be a model and exemplify the behaviors I want my students to value by instilling a passion in my students for the field of education and an understanding of how each teacher impacts the lives of countless students. I strongly believe, in the old saying, "Teaching is leaving a vestige of oneself in the development of another" and who better to invest in than the future teachers of our children."
