Civics

I considered myself an instructor first and content specialist second. My utmost passion is working with students to realize their potential while navigating the education system. I hold endorsements as a Learning Behavior Specialist (LBS-I) and English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) in addition to a Master's of Arts degree. My first and foremost interest is working with students who struggle to learn for a variety of reasons and backgrounds. My experience as a teacher is ongoing at 13 years.

Favorite Quote: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial 'outside agitator' idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds." -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
