"One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result, and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community." Albert Einstein

It has taken me awhile to understand that my joy in life is to be a teacher; to pass on the knowledge I have learned through my business endeavors, educational experience and life lessons. I am blessed to be involved in the development of students, which inspires me to strive to make a difference in their lives, to imprint a piece of my experiences on them so that they can achieve whatever they desire and find joy in that endeavor.
