Personal Information:

I love to teach students that true learning is their responsibility and the love of real learning is contagious! I believe the educational curriculum is extremely important, but more importantly, imparting a legacy of truth, character, and integrity will assist students intellectually in internalizing knowledge and being able to reason in the future. When I am not teaching or preparing lessons, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling, and cooking different cultural foods.
