"Things turn out the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out." -John Wooden
I am a passionate educator who has a deep desire to spread my love for teaching and learning.
Each day we have the opportunity to shine our light, to pay it forward. How will you strive to share your talents, your gifts? If you discovered this website, then you have found a safe space that's about progress. You won't find perfection, rather a place where growth is celebrated. Where the unknown is welcomed. So whether you are seeking a renewal of your purpose, an endless supply of ideas, stories that will ignite passion, or innovative ideas that will ignite your inner child, we will now embark on a journey together. A journey to inspire purpose, passion, and play.
Welcome to my space to share, to grow, and to learn. I look forward to your feedback, your ideas, and the opportunity to share my love for learning. Over the past fifteen years, I have learned more than I could ever imagine. What to do, not to do, and how to always keep moving forward. My hope is that you find nuggets of truth, inspiration, connections, and that we can learn together to ensure our students are prepared for their dreams, their passions, and their future.
