I believe all students have the ability and inherent desire to learn. The educator's job is to spark that desire and encourage every student to rise to his or her potential. I take this charge very seriously and am extremely proud to say that I am a teacher. I feel a responsibility to help young people become the best they can be. With a caring, patient teacher as a guide, any student can be successful. I consider myself a success if I can provide my students with the tools to help them become lifelong learners with a renewed desire for knowledge. If we continue to challenge them and maintain high expectations, we cannot begin to imagine what amazing things our students will be able to accomplish.
