Any student can learn if they truly want to. A big part of my job is to help them believe in themselves, believe they can. Another part is to show them how they can.

I love working with people, especially young people. I had the opportunity to substitute in Osseo, Roseville and Robbinsdale and I fell in love with Park Center.
