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

    Albert Einstein said, "You can't solve the problems of today with the thinking of yesterday." I believe each of us is born with the ability to create and think imaginatively. How else do you explain the way children turn a tree fort into a pirate ship or a stick into a magic wand? I try to ignite passion in my students by reminding them being creative, imaginative and self confident is cool. This is how discoveries are made. As Einstein suggests, to move forward in our society we need more young people making discoveries.

  • A Teachable Moment

    If there is one thing my students remember from being in my class, I hope it is to remain curious and never stop learning, because the more I learn, the more I discover that there is a lot I still don't know.
