Why I Teach:

The desire to create and make things is an essential part of the human spirit. As a teacher, I am determined to help students engage in a positive manner with their surroundings and develop their technical skills. It is important to promote communication skills and interpersonal experiences to build rapport with students from a wide variety of backgrounds to encourage their intellectual and emotional growth.
