Objective
Obtain a teaching position to share my passion for teaching, my content, and for Technology. Technology can be a great equalizer in education when it is used as a tool to lead students to create “new things, not simply … repeating what other generations have done." - Jean Piaget I believe I can teach any student, anywhere. Whether it is teaching Honors courses in the mountains, or instructing at-risk students in the Piedmont I will always strive to reach my students.
