About Me: I believe that every student is a mysterious world unto him or herself. As a teacher, my job is not to change that world, but rather, to unlock the door to it and discover all the possibilities inside. If I can help my students accept themselves for the people they are, both good and the bad, and find productive ways to proactively bank on this so they may make valued contributions to their communities, then I will have done my job.
Favorite Quote: "It [is] easy to be great. Every entertainer has a night when everything is clicking. These nights are accidental and statistical: Like lucky cards in poker, you can count on them occurring over time. What [is] hard is to be [good], consistently good, night after night, no matter what the abominable circumstances." -Steve Martin
