Why Do I Teach?
My grandmother was an educator in the New York City Public School System for over twenty years. She first inspired me to continue the legacy of working towards educating my community. I teach and continue to teach because of a deep belief that an awakened mind is the most powerful tool in the world, and that we all have a duty to serve. Teaching is my service to the world.
My Expectations of Students
I expect my students to leave my classroom different than the way that they entered. I expect them to become critical thinkers in and outside of the classroom, and to develop an intrinsic motivation to learn, grow, and become better individuals.
