My passion for education was ignited at a very young age, unusual I'm sure, I was quite lucky though. I was a part of the GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) Program in
schools. I had some of the best educators in the state as my guides and
mentors. I still look to them today for advice and direction. I believe that our most supreme responsibility is to create
opportunities for young people to live out their fantasies, dreams, and wildest
ambitions. Dr. Csikszentmihalyi of the California
teaches that through play young people are able to connect with parts of their
creativity and intellect in a way that no other activity allows. I believe that
active learning is the optimal environment for any student but it must be
tailored to their needs. I believe that education is not a
one-size-fits-all formula, but rather, a constantly evolving experience as
unique as the individuals who can be forever shaped for the good. University of Chicago
I believe that learning should happen organically and that the most effective lessons are the ones you learn when you don't even realize you're being taught. I believe that learning is a lifelong pursuit and a habit that begins in our formative years. We are inspired by those that are around us, who motivate us to work hard, to become something greater than we are today. I believe that education is the greatest equalizing tool that awakens giants and emboldens them to take charge of their destiny and change the world. If my students feel empowered and inspired then I have succeeded. If they have been challenged enough to see their own capacity for growth, I have succeeded.
Education is my passion. Helping people achieve their dreams is what truly animates me. Working closely with Sir Ken Robinson I learned that passion is what activates real learning and ignites a life of imaginative beginnings and happy endings. I believe life is a school and every moment a privilege to share our vision of the future with those around us. I believe that young people are our future. I believe that it is our calling and our responsibility to help them make this a better place.
