•      My mission as an educator is to be a positive, supportive, reflective, and consistent catalyst of educational experiences that meet each student at their level of learning and inspire them to soar.  I believe in maintaining and demonstrating high expectations in all aspects of learning for students and will endeavor to exemplify the  attributes of a high performing educator as a model, mentor, and instructor.  My mission is to impart my immense passion for teaching and learning to students and establish in them the belief that they have the power and ability to do anything they believe they can do.
