By teaching them to be citizens of an evolving world, I prepare them for both challenges and opportunities they will encounter throughout their lives. It is my passion to empower students to be active participants in their communities and have a lasting positive impact. My first-hand experience in the public school system gives me valuable insight into the effect of the decisions made by adults on behalf of students.
