About Me!

Colleges Attended:
La Sierra University, Riverside CA.  Bachelors Degree
Pacific Union College, Angwin CA. Associates Degree
Why Teaching:

I chose teaching primarily because I believe it to be the calling that God has placed on my life, but also because of how highly I esteem it. Pandit J.L. Nehru said, "The destiny of a nation is shaped in the classrooms."  NO career, NO work can be more rewarding than that of a teacher who is occupied in building the personality of a student in order to equip him/her to face the challenges of a competitive world in the throes of transition and change. As has been rightly said: an average teacher tells, a good teacher explains, an excellent teacher demonstrates, and an outstanding teacher inspires.

Favorite Bible verse: " Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courages. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." - Joshua 1:9
