Teaching Philosophy: Learning is its own reward, and the true value in education isn’t the destination, but the journey, because that’s where the memories are made. EVERY student can learn, grow, and improve, and EVERY student has a success story inside of them, waiting to be told. It’s my job to help tell that story, page by page, as it happens, in real time.
