Why I Teach

"I love helping others. There are few things in life that thrill me as much as learning something new and helping others discover how to do new things as well. Throughout my life as a student, I have always admired my teachers as they helped me learn, explore, and discover my inner strengths and talents. My teachers played an invaluable role as facilitators in my educational career, and I hope I can do the same now for my students. I am so happy to be teaching at Seven Oaks in its second year."
