“Smart is not something you are, it is something you become.”
“Gort, Klaatu barada nikto.”
An Interesting fact about me:
I came to teaching late in life after reading Rick Warren’s book, The Purpose Driven Life. I believe that I was called to teach at St. Joseph’s and to be part of this wonderful Catholic community. I want all of my students to know how thankful and excited I am to have the opportunity to teach them.
