Why Do You Love Teaching? George Washington Carver stated that, "Education is the key to unlock the golden door to freedom.” Thus, I love being an educator for I know of no other profession or calling that holds such an awesome power in uplifting the lives of others, and also allows one to work day in and day out with the greatest among us!

What Are Your Goals As A Teacher This Year? To facilitate personal growth, maturation, empowerment, confidence, positive self-image/identity, academic engagement/skill set acquisition and mastery, smiles, and laughter for each of the young people I am most honored to serve.
