As a teacher, I bring a richness and diversity to the classroom. My students have told me that I have an incredible amount of patience. I judge my success by the successes of my students. However, I evaluate my teaching style not by the successes, but by the failures. If I can't reach a student, I try to revise my approach and deliver the content in a different way. I see myself as a mentor to my students and strive to make a difference in all of their lives. I truly want them to succeed and reach their dreams.
