“Be bold, be brave. Teachers are preparing students for jobs that don’t even exist yet or will function in vastly different ways than today.  As educators, we need to model for our students the ability to think outside the box, explore our passions and that they are more than just a test score.”

“It is not good enough to simply have them learn facts, get a diploma, and move on. Teaching a student is so much more than that. Teaching a student means to form a lasting bond, to understand them, to push them, to question them, to want more for them, to love them”.
