I am an experienced, positive, and energetic person who is passionate about making a


beneficial impact in childrens lives. I am most energized when I can connect with people and
help them achieve their highest goals. I use individualization strategies and knowledge about
the learning process to help students succeed academically and socially. Connecting and
communicating are essential for an effective educator, and I enjoy coming alongside adults and
children to help them advance their education and truly love learning.
