“I enjoy the positive side of building relationships with students and sharing my experiences with those that are just beginning to learn from theirs.  My philosophy in life is to give back to others, in repayment for all those that gave me direction in my life.  I do not believe we are put on this earth for ourselves but for helping others.”
