As a third-generation educator, I have seen the transformational power of education. I have held my colleagues, my students and myself to high performance standards while recognizing that people may not have the same advantages. I have been a strong proponent of "raising the bar" and helping students see themselves as unique individuals -- encouraging them to take responsibility for their learning and success.
