Each day I wake up and present myself with challenges: to transcend borders, expose intense emotions, exert gratification and instill genuine values within my students' repertoires. When my students lose sight of their inspiration, I read lines from their writing out loud. They need to realize their words have power. Unfaltering passion, merit and motivation define my aspirations. Traveling and experiencing novelty are lifestyles that I cannot live without. Inventiveness is what I wish to exhibit and the type of classroom I seek to invent, thus interlacing fragments of each. As an educator, I could easily resort to the power of my pen, circling the distance between students and myself to correct inelegances. However, that is not who I am. The position of any learner's heart is far more important than the location of their apostrophes'. I want to send my students out into the world as life long learners.
