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

    It means that through my content I need to find a way to get every student excited about the process of learning, and provide my students tools that they can use to in any area to find more about what interests them.

  • A Teachable Moment

    In high school I was in the final year of a three year Chemistry program. The teacher had an emergency medical leave, and the only sub that could be found had a social studies background. I was asked to provide content instruction to the first year chemistry students during my free periods. This opportunity helped me discover my potential as a teacher.
