History / Mission Statement:
I am the first person in my family to have gone to college. Teaching has become a calling for me. I have a deep-seated belief that all students are capable of success. As a teacher it is my responsibility to provide my students with the tools they need to reach their full potential. My experiences attending several different high schools, being a homeless student, and overcoming abject poverty have given me a unique perspective. The combination of my background and post-secondary education has prepared me to teach in any learning environment.
