The 3 C's: community, culture and creativity. My values are based on spirituality and vocation.

I'm a good listener and observer. I encourage creative and independent thinking, as opposed to systematic and predictable thinking. I teach academic content in a way that broadens their perspectives on life. I tap into their mind processes, and I make real-life examples in the class.
