“The beliefs that guide my daily practice are that education is awesome and it’s also triumphantly fun. Teaching is the best job in the world… and so is learning! I believe that students need to see the direct correlation between the skills we learn in class and their application and importance in their present and future. I also believe that students need time for independent, small group, and large group learning, with as much choice and creativity as possible within a rigorous and practical framework. Ensuring that all students have access to a top-notch education is a human rights issue, and is essential to create the kind of world we want to live in.”
