Why Brownell-Talbot School?
I chose to teach at BT because I seriously buy into its motto of "inspiring, exceeding, [and] leading." I inform my students with a strong sense of commitment to excel in any worthy endeavor and I expect no less from each of them. This includes participating in activities in the classroom and in state and national competition.
What do I enjoy about teaching?
Teaching affords me the opportunity to see my students grow in character and in the academic area during the years that they are under my instruction.
My Philosophy of Education-a Life Lesson
I stress to my students that education is a life-long process and does not stop after a diploma or degree.
