Notes
  • What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me

    Igniting passion is key; we have to live our lives with a goal in mind and serve some type of purpose. Contributing some type of talent to the world will make our society vastly better. Regardless if a student in class is passionate about the content area I teach, my contagious passion for life shows students how to be purposeful and compassionate.

  • A Teachable Moment

    Studying abroad in Spain is one experience that changed me. During this time I learned so much about culture, how others function in a global society and why communicating with others is so vital. While in Ciudad Rodrigo for Carnaval, I realized that I was standing on the wrong side of the barricade and the bell that released the bulls had rung. I remember thinking how essential it is to be aware of your surroundings at all times; if not, your life can change in the blink of an eye.
