I have the best daughter in the world! Teaching is the best part of my life next to my daughter and family! I absolutely love my job campus, faculty, and students. I truly enjoy teaching because of all the positive energy and creativity. Not only do I teach my students, but I also learn from them as well. I respect my students no matter their age, background, personal needs, or skill level. I have a true passion for their success and truly get excited when I see my students achieve their dream career.
