Personal Statement

Every student is an individual with unique skills, needs and dreams. If those students and I can work collaboratively to develop those things to their fullest, we can both succeed. The classroom needs to be a place where students are comfortable enough to explore both what they can do and what they have difficulty doing. It is my job, along with the other students, to encourage them, help them and push them as necessary to achieve their goals.

There is a unique opportunity at the community college level to be an important link in a lifetime of learning for interested individuals.
