"I am a teacher because I love learning and I am passionate about mathematics education. I enthusiastically bring my energy to the classroom where I believe that all students can be successful... I do not believe that my career path as an educator must take me out of the classroom. I believe that there must be more opportunities for accomplished teachers to learn, grow, and have their voices heard, without leaving teaching."
