    Welcome Message:
    Welcome to my page!  I have been in the field of education as a Secondary Social Studies teacher for 20 years.  Today, students are being educated in an ever changing world and educational environment. Students of the 21st Century have a yearning for learning in diverse ways.  It is my responsibility as an educator in today's world to make my lessons stimulating enough to make classes meaningful, purposeful, and personally useful. One of the most fundamental reasons for me becoming a teacher is the fact that I love to motivate students as well as teach students.  I pride myself on challenging my students to better themselves and strive for their maximum potential.  I feel that a great teacher is not just a great instructor but a teffific motivator as well.  I feel that structure and organization are essential in a classroom.  It is important that my students know what is expected from them.  Expectations should be set high and very early on in the academic school year.  I hope you find my page inviting and interactive.  I feel students must be provided with a wide variety of thinking skills which develop knowledge, core values, life skills, and attitudes that will help them effectively function politically, economically, socially, morally, and intellectually.  I expect my students to always strive for excellence and uphold the Collegiate Academy motto of Pride, Honor, and Respect.
