"I believe that it is the teacher’s responsibility to adapt to a student’s needs and a student’s responsibility to do the hard work assigned to them. It is important to me that students appreciate what they learn and why they learn it. I want to inspire a passion in students for learning and how they can change the world with what they have learned. And above all I believe that if you strive for excellence, success will follow.”
