Be the change you wish to see in the world--Ghandi

My passion as a teacher leader is to elevate the profession in the eyes of the general public, and to advance the our profession in the areas of preparation and mentoring as well as professional standards/certification. These ideas matter to me because teacher quality is the single most important factor toward educational equity in our country. Every child deserves the best education possible!
