Objective

In my teaching career, I have sought both to attain excellence and to inspire graduate students, many student teachers, and younger students to reach for excellence -- even when it requires overcoming great challenges. It is my desire that young students become self-sufficient and that their parents become fully equipped to carry out their key role in the lives of their children. In working with student teachers and graduate students, I have attempted to instill a love of excellence seasoned with a dose of the "real world" of teaching in public school settings. In my private practice, I work to educate and encourage parents of my clients to learn about their child's unique needs and to become the primary educators in their children's lives. These principles underlie all my career objectives.
