In his own words . . .
“I’m always reminded that the beauty of my profession changes the lives of so many different people each day, and personally, that makes me feel special. My personal belief about teaching is that all students deserve learning-centered environments, where they can receive information and necessary knowledge that will help them understand the importance of making great decisions.”
