Personal Statement

Personal Statement



"Education is not the learning of facts but the trainingof the mind to think" – Albert Einstein


I love learning, and sharing knowledge, therefore teaching has become my passions. I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and, find pleasure in learning from others as well as current topics in the literature. My personal philosophy is to never stop learning and to continually strive for excellence. This means always looking to see how to make improvements in self and processes. I believe teachers are facilitators and everyone has the potential to learn what they are motivated or interested in.
