Personal Philosophy

Teaching is a calling and is deeply connected to my Faith principles. Scripture cautions, "Let not many of you be teachers." believe this refers to traditional teaching within the believing community, as well as in the classroom, and in my every day responsibility to model what I want students to do. Life long learning is an imperative!
