Personal and professional goals

My passion is teaching and to give back to the community in a personal and professional capacity. Through my job I can assist students to unlock their potential and meet their goals/dreams. My personal goal is to live life to the fullest and enjoy the small moments as these turn out to be big moments at the end.
