Personal Note: 
"Students finding and learning about their voices matters most when it comes to engaging with others, their perspectives, and their contexts. My goal is for every student to feel known, seen, heard, and valued in our educational environment. I also hope that students work to listen to understand their peers’ ideas and learn more about the people behind those ideas. When we are able to engage in that purposeful work, improving your composition, reading, critical thinking, and analytical skills feels second nature to our being. The students’ courage, conviction, and opportunities for creative collaboration makes Springs a fascinating place to work toward these goals.
