Personal Statement

Personal Statement

As an educator, I have learned that it is not nearly as important to have aspirations for our students as it is to aspire to provide the tools and scaffolding of experiences they need to identify and work toward the fulfillment of their own dreams. I am a practitioner, my work has been focused on how teaching and learning takes place and the interpersonal dynamics that constrain and promote the process, in and out of the traditional classroom. Learning can and does take place anywhere there are people who are open to the process of communicating, who are eager to share what they know and feel with each other and who genuinely want the best for each other. For me and the students I have been privileged to serve, it's about the relationships we take the time to build.
