Educational Philosophy:

My educational philosophy is that education is transformational. It is my life mission to change lives through empowering students, teachers and the surrounding community. It is a personal thrill to see students overcome challenges and discover what is possible within themselves.

Teaching Philosophy:

I teach because I love knowledge. New knowledge is best but all knowledge is enduring. I want my love of knowledge to be contagious. I love the structure of learning at Pacific View. We put the emphasis on you. How do you learn best? At what hours? What are your strengths? Then we let you grow by failing and trying. Eventually, the journey is what gives us knowledge.
