Educational Philosophy:

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”   ~ Henry Ford


Henry Ford said it best:  being a lifelong learner keeps you young.  It is my goal to not only teach English to my students, but to also instill in them a love of learning so that they will be lifelong learners, readers, and writers.  Engaging students with practical and innovative concepts and lessons keeps both the students and me young.  We all learn something new every day, and I hope that my students can take what they learn in my class and continue to learn, innovate, and transform the world around them
