This will be my eleventh year proudly teaching as a Buljan Bulldog. I tremendously enjoy helping students to reach their full academic, personal, and social potentials while maintaining engaging and collaborative working environments. My mission as an educator is to guide my students to develop and cultivate growth mindsets in regard to their own learning, critical thinking, and goal setting. I have 180 days to positively influence students’ abilities to navigate the multi-tasking demands of the world around them, and I take every day very seriously.
