This is why I teach…

Today is my 51st birthday!  How do I express the immense joy I feel inside?

Teaching Middle School English was not in the plan; yet I have exceeded my own expectation in achieving greatness!  My students and their lives matter.  I get it! I know that I am doing what I was intended to do.  I am grateful to God (the Master Planner) for my life and the experiences that has brought me to this point.

My whole life, I desired to “BE” the difference.  Every day I step into my classroom – I am achieving that GOAL.
