"As you can see from my resume, I am a lifelong learner. I truly believe that all students can learn and it is the responsibility of teachers to provide a safe and stimulating educational environment. I love teaching and I love learning but most of all, I love making my grandsons laugh. I am excited about being a statewide mentor and can't wait to build some new relationships."
