What are your goals in teaching your students? What do you hope to achieve?

My teaching goals are to recognize each student's uniqueness, assist them in reaching their potential, and let them know that they matter. I want to help develop individuals who are independent thinkers, hard workers who do their best, laugh often, and have fun learning.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy writing, gardening, and working in my yard. I also enjoy everything Star Wars and collecting vintage toys.

If there was one thing you could tell your 13-year-old self, what would it be?

Don't worry too much about what others think of you. Follow your passions and be proud of yourself.
